About this Program

Students intending to seek a B.S. in Medical Laboratory Science should initally declare a Major in Biology with a Health and Medical Sciences emphasis and work with the Medical Laboratory Science Program Director to ensure they are selecting courses from within the curriuclum that also meet the MLS degree requirements. In order to declare the MLS major, the students would have to have been accepted into an affiliated accreditated clinical program. Students attempting to complete the MSL degree in four years would apply to affiliated clinical programs at the start of their third year and complete the required academic curriculum prior to the start of their third year and complete the reqired academic curriculum prior to starting the year of clinical education. Students completing the MLS degree in five years would apply at the start of their fourth year. All academic coursework must be complete prior to starting the clinical education internship. With careful course selection, students following the five year plan may be able to also complete the BA in Biology with an emphasis in Health and Medical Sciences within the same time frame. Transfer students wishing to complete any Biology major must complete at least 6 credits from approved 300-400 level corses in the Biosciences Department at Minnesota State University Moorhead, regardless of thenumber of transfer credits accepted toward the major.
