Students working in the lab togetherA degree in medical laboratory science prepares you to perform a variety of laboratory assays on human and other types of specimens in clinical, research, commercial and forensic laboratories. Our graduates will be equipped with the tools to provide diagnostic data and the information necessary to support health care, ensure quality control, facilitate product development and solve problems.

This major incorporates didactic and clinical education throughout an online curriculum that will take two years for most students who already have an associate degree to complete.

Northern’s online CLS program is unique in that in addition to high-quality CLS coursework, you will take workplace leadership courses as part of your minor to satisfy general education requirements. These classes are designed to prepare you for supervisory roles in clinical settings.
