Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs (by degree)

A concentration in Medical Laboratory Science may be obtained through a four year program at Maryville. The student gains practical experience through a 12-month internship in an accredited CLS/MT hospital-based program if they choose to do so for a fifth year. Internship placements are available on a competitive basis and cannot be guaranteed by the university.

Upon successful completion of the hospital-based CLS/MT program, and after earning the degree in Biology with the Concentration in Medical Laboratory Science, students may sit for an examination to become certified medical laboratory scientists/medical technologists. The five year program provides students with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with a Concentration in MLS. The inclusion of a 12-month internship allows hands-on, practical experience in the student’s chosen profession and the student can earn a double major in Biology and Medical Laboratory Science.
