Your Future in Medical Laboratory Technology

This program is for students who already have an Associate of Arts degree in medical technology and are certified MLT. This program is designed for you to complete your bachelor’s degree in two years of coursework and transition from MLT to MLS certification. You may transfer up to 89 credits from your associate’s degree toward your bachelor’s degree. No further clinical courses or clinical rotations are required. The science courses for this degree are currently held in an in-person on-ground format. Students are expected to attend classes on campus.

Charleston Southern University’s accreditation can be found here.

Science Building

The Science building allows all students access to up-to-date laboratories and modern equipment for teaching. There is also a greenhouse that is more than a campus adornment; the CSU greenhouse gives students unique opportunities that are not available at many colleges.

I have had a lot of jobs; this is by far the most rewarding and best thing I have ever done.
