Laboratory Science Concentration (B.H.S.)
The Bachelor of Health Science with a concentration in Laboratory Science is an excellent degree for students who wish to specialize in laboratory studies or advanced medical training outside of the typical hospital or clinical laboratory setting. This program is designed to provide students with necessary coursework to either continue with CLS studies after graduation or to apply to graduate programs in a health care field of their choice. The clinical experience is not included in this degree.
Students applying for admission to this program must apply through the Clinical Laboratory Science admission procedure. See the Bachelor of Science in Clinical Laboratory Science program page for details.
Preprofessional science courses must be completed within the six years just prior to admission to a professional program. Exceptions to this policy may be made on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the program faculty. Documentation of competency must be provided by the applicant requesting the exception.
These courses are taken under direction of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
Pre-professional curriculum requirements for the Bachelor of Health Science with a concentration in Laboratory Science are identical to those for the Bachelor of Science in Clinical Laboratory Science. Please see the Bachelor of Science in Clinical Laboratory Science requirements page for details.
The BHS with a concentration in Laboratory Science degree requires a total of 120 credits.
