Laboratory Science Concentration (B.H.S.)
Students interested in the B.S. in Clinical Laboratory Science (CLS) are initially admitted into this degree track. If a student is not accepted into the CLS track in the Fall of the second professional program year, he/she may complete sufficient credits to graduate with the Bachelor of Health Science with a concentration in laboratory science degree. This degree is also for students interested in entering a subsequent graduate program. The curriculum allows flexibility in course selection to meet the prerequisites for the Pathologists' Assistant Program, Physician Assistant Studies Program, medical school, or graduate school in a basic medical science. This degree does not include any clinical experiential courses. Admission to the CLS major program is required to register for clinical experiential courses.
Admission decisions for the B.H.S. with a concentration in laboratory science degree may include: Accepted, Denied, or Conditional Acceptance. If applicants are taking prerequisite courses during the application process, acceptance will not be final until satisfactory completion of the requirements.
The B.H.S. with a concentration in laboratory science degree requires a total of 120 credits.
