Studying Medical Laboratory Sciences at Weber State

Weber State’s associate and bachelor level degree programs in medical laboratory sciences gives students who enjoy solving problems, and are already employed in medical laboratories, the skills to become certified laboratory professionals.

Medical Laboratory Sciences Highlights

Weber State was the first university in the world to offer both bachelor’s and associate’s degrees in medical laboratory sciences both on campus and completely online.

Out-of-state online students pay close to the same tuition rate as in-state students, and 100% of graduates find careers in clinical labs or go on to graduate school.

Beyond the Classroom

Because you’ll work in a medical laboratory while you’re completing your degree, you can use the skills you learn in class while on the job.

What You’ll LEARN at Weber

As a medical laboratory sciences major, you will complete projects in the field that focus on the day-to-day administrative aspects of the laboratory, such as:

  • CAP and CLIA compliance
  • New instrument selection
  • Policy and procedure writing
  • Workload management
  • Test method comparison and validation
  • Quality assurance practices
  • Approaches to teaching and supervision

What You CAN DO After Weber

You’ll be prepared for national certification to work in hospital or clinical laboratories, physician assistant and other graduate programs.
