About the Program Clinical Biology, MS

This master’s program in clinical biology is designed to prepare laboratory and allied health professionals for career advancement by providing interdisciplinary educational opportunities in research, biotechnology, clinical practice and healthcare law, ethics and leadership.

Students can choose between two different specializations, Laboratory Management or Histotechnology. Both options culminate in a capstone project, where students will conduct a directed research project around a clinical case study.


  • The Laboratory Management Specialization requires 31 graduate semester credit hours for graduation. Students may choose to attend part-time or full-time as their schedules allow, and may choose among a number of elective courses that meet their individual needs and interests. If attending on a full-time basis, students in this specialization option can complete their master’s degree in four semesters. This degree option will prepare the student for leadership positions in research, clinical practice, management and industry.

  • The Histotechnology Specialization requires 32 graduate semester credit hours for graduation, and is designed to be completed in 12 months. However, students can stretch the program to 1.5 to 2 years by taking fewer courses each semester. This degree option will prepare the student for leadership positions in research, industry and clinical practice.
