Return to Academic Programs (alphabetical) Return to: Academic Programs (alphabetical)

A Bachelor of Science in Clinical Laboratory Science (B.S.C.L.S.) degree may be obtained through a four- or five-year program at Maryville. In the fourth or fifth year, depending on which program is entered, the student gains practical experience through a 12-month internship in an accredited CLS/MT hospital-based program. 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 Clinical Laboratory Science, students may sit for an examination to become certified clinical laboratory scientists/medical technologists. The five year program provides students with a double major in clinical laboratory science and biology. For entrance requirements, see Special Admissions Requirements. No minor is required for a B.S.C.L.S.
