What Classes Will I Take?
Here are just a few of the classes you will take during the Medical Laboratory Science Bachelor Degree program:
Advanced Hematology, Microbiology and Clinical Chemistry
124 CREDITS – 2,590 CONTACT HOURS – 120 WEEKS
This program will prepare students for entry level positions in the clinical laboratory performing and evaluating laboratory tests that will aid in the detection, diagnosis and treatment of disease. Students will perform tests on blood and body fluids, using manual and automated procedures in the area of blood bank/transfusion medicine, chemistry, hematology, microbiology, urinalysis, immunology, and molecular diagnostics. In addition, students will learn concepts related to laboratory operations and management, quality assessment and assurance, research and effective techniques for the training of new laboratory personnel. Graduates can seek employment in a variety of health care and laboratory settings including hospitals, clinics, research and reference laboratories, blood banks and industry.
The Medical Laboratory Science program is a continuation from the Medical Laboratory Technician program, therefore all MLT coursework provides the first four semesters of the eight-semester program.
Student Learning Outcomes:
Graduates of the Medical Laboratory Science Bachelor in Science Degree Program will be able to:
- Demonstrate professionalism as expected of a health care worker by: adhering to regulations, including safety and confidentiality, as required by federal, state and local laws and the institutions for which they are employed; acting with integrity; employing ethical standards and behaviors; communicating and collaborating with other members of the health care team, patients and the public; adhering to acceptable hygiene and appearance standards; and working within established standards of practice.
- Perform, monitor and apply quality control and quality assurance principles in the workplace. Safely and accurately collect and process various biological samples for analysis. Perform and demonstrate entry-level technical skills for routine and specialized laboratory procedures in the pre-analytical, analytical and postanalytical components of chemistry hematology/hemostasis, blood bank/transfusion medicine, microbiology, immunology, urinalysis/body fluids, and laboratory operations. Perform entry-level supervisory, administrative, education and training functions as appropriate of a medical laboratory scientist. Demonstrate the ability to develop, implement and disseminate the results of a clinical research study.
- Recognize and apply results of laboratory analysis of normal, abnormal and unexpected results as required of an entry-level medical laboratory scientist and take appropriate actions with regard to reporting results and/or repeating policies and procedures. Evaluate and take action on results of routine and specialized laboratory analyses following predetermined protocols and using effective critical thinking skills.

Accreditation is the recognition that an institution maintains the standards required to achieve the credentials for professional practice. It is the status granted to an institution that meets or exceeds specific criteria of educational quality as defined by the accrediting agency.
- Institutional Accreditation: Brookline College’s Phoenix, Tucson, Tempe, and Albuquerque campuses are accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools. On December 12, 2016, the Secretary of the Department of Education upheld a decision to end recognition of ACICS as a recognized accreditor. Institutions accredited by ACICS will have until June 12, 2018 to obtain accreditation from a recognized accreditor.
- Programmatic Accreditation: Programmatic accreditation, also known as specialized or professional accreditation, is designed for specialized departments, programs, schools, or colleges within a university or institution that has already received accreditation.
