Clinical Laboratory Sciences

Fast-track your career in the clinical medical arena with a B.S. in Clinical Laboratory Sciences and a minor in biology from Georgian Court University.

The joint degree program is a partnership with the Rutgers School of Health Professions (Rutgers-SHP). You will spend the first three years taking basic science and General Education courses, and then apply to Rutgers-SHP prior to the end of their junior year. If accepted, you will spend the fourth year completing specialized courses in one of two areas: medical laboratory science or cytotechnology.*

Before enrolling in Rutgers, you must complete at least 90 credits in total (including required Rutgers prerequisite courses). Upon successful completion of the fourth year, students earn the B.S. in Clinical Laboratory Sciences with a minor in biology, which is jointly awarded by Rutgers and GCU. Students must check that their credits from both institutions equal at least 120 credits.

*Please note that the cytotechnology program was discontinued by Rutgers University in 2017 and will probably be replaced by a 3+2 combined bachelor’s to master’s program. Students interested in cytotechnology cannot currently choose a cytotechnology degree pathway but may wish to ensure that they complete the previous cytotechnology course requirements while at GCU so they are prepared for a cytotechnology degree pathway in the future.
