Our department offers a graduate program leading to the Master of Science in Medical Laboratory Science (MSMLS).
Our MSMLS degree is a professional degree designed to meet the needs of the Medical Laboratory Scientist (MLS) in an increasingly complex healthcare environment.
With the amount of, and demand for, laboratory testing increasing each year, a significant need exists for MLS professionals. Particularly for individuals with advanced technical knowledge, management skills, and leadership abilities.
We have worked hard to make a number of options available in response to the diversity of career skills required by today's medical laboratory scientists (medical technologist)
Our professional degree program requires the completion of at least five (5) credits of Applied Studies in Medical Laboratory Science as determined by the emphasis chosen.
A Capstone Project is also a part of the Applied Studies in Medical Laboratory Science course.
Our Master's degree features a variety of program emphases, including concentrations in...

and Laboratory Mission and Development.
For this portion of the program, students may be required to work in collaboration with one of our nationwide affiliate clinical or research facilities located across the United States.
Note: Affiliates are added and/or deleted from year to year, therefore a particular clinical site cannot be guaranteed.
With a masters level degree, you will be equipped to become a leader in healthcare. Depending on the area of specialization, graduates of the MSMLS Program are qualified for several leadership positions in the MLS field.
Laboratory Managers or Supervisors
Laboratory Information Systems Directors
Our goal is to prepare you for today’s global work environment, to help you develop the skills needed for excellence in healthcare, and to encourage a dedication to improving the human condition.
