About the Medical Laboratory Science Undergraduate Program
An undergraduate degree in Medical Laboratory Science (formerly Medical Technology) will prepare a student for the rigorous world of hospital and clinical laboratories. Classes are designed to teach students how to perform diagnostic tests, with both theoretical and practical looks at the discipline in order for the student to have a full grasp of laboratory technology and analysis.
The career field for medical laboratory science is very strong, with a 100% job placement rate within 6 months of graduation. Graduates of the program are in great demand in central and south Mississippi, and a quality education is important in order to provide top care in these facilities. Southern Miss is a leader in medical technology in the Gulf South, and we encourage quality students to pursue this degree in order to fill a healthcare need in our state.
