Traditional On-Campus Route
The Bachelor of Science in M.L.S. Degree, 2+2 route of study, is for students who have not previously earned a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited university.
This curriculum consists of two years pre-professional coursework (pre-MLS) followed by two years professional coursework (B.S.-MLS).
Students who complete the four semesters of pre-professional MLS curriculum at UND are eligible to apply for the professional curriculum in the summer prior to the start of their junior year. The students' junior year, or first year of the professional curriculum, includes several professional courses such as Clinical Hematology and Clinical Microbiology as well as courses needed to complete the University's Essential Studies requirements for a Bachelor's of Science degree.
The final year of the professional curriculum consist of a three semester course of study with a total of 39 credits which includes a summer semester of online classes, a fall on-campus intensive lab experience, and an 18 week clinical rotation during the final spring semester.
This program requires 125 total credit hours.
Individual course descriptions, specific degree requirements, and a 4 year course plan are listed in the UND Academic Catalog. Students are required to meet regularly with UND MLS faculty/staff to develop and monitor a program of study that aligns with established curriculum requirements.
Students will apply to the professional program the summer before their junior year.
