College of Arts and Sciences

                          Professor           Janet Cooper, Ph. D. (Program Director)       


Undergraduate students interested in medical laboratory sciences may apply directly to the program. Applications are obtained from the academic director on campus, or from the specific program of an affiliate.

Students may elect one of two routes of entry into the program. Students who are seeking a baccalaureate degree in medical laboratory sciences from Rockhurst University must complete 98 semester hours and all non-clinical degree requirements before beginning the professional component at a hospital site. The professional component lasts approximately one calendar year. Upon successful completion of the medical laboratory sciences course work, the student is awarded a Bachelor of Science degree in Medical Laboratory Sciences.

Students may choose to complete a degree with a major in chemistry, biology, or other related area, including the specific required courses for medical laboratory sciences admission, and then apply directly to one of the affiliated hospitals for admission to medical laboratory sciences as a non-degree student. Students considering this option should discuss the relative advantages with the academic director and the program director.
