Medical Laboratory Science Program

Students desiring acceptance to all of the programs in medical laboratory science should make application to the department before March 1 for the August class.

We invite you to discover the exciting field of Medical Laboratory Science. Medical laboratory scientists (also known as medical technologists) provide essential clinical information to health care providers and are responsible for assuring reliable results that contribute to the prevention, diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment of physiological and pathological conditions. Laboratory tests are extremely valuable and contribute up to 70% of all medical decisions made by health care providers. The Medical Laboratory Science
program at Armstrong State University is the largest in the state of Georgia.

We offer the Bachelor of Science in Medical Laboratory Science in three tracks:

Traditional Track
The traditional track is for entering freshmen and transfer students. Students with a BS degree in biology, chemistry or related science fields are eligible for this track as well.
The deadline to apply for the traditional track is March 1.
