Why biology cytogenetic technology?
The Cytogenetic Technology program is a four-year program designed to provide the student with a bachelor of arts degree with a major in Biology Cytogenetic Technology. Saint Mary's University is affiliated with the cytogenetic technology training program at the Mayo School of Health Sciences.
Prior to a clinical year of internship, the student must complete three years of course work (90 credits) at Saint Mary's University, including the general education requirements. Of these 90 credits, 30 must be upper-division credits. Acceptance to the clinical program at Mayo is contingent upon the student's academic achievement. Upon successful completion of the clinical program, the student receives a certificate in cytogenetic technology and is eligible to take the certification examination of the National Credentialing Agency for Laboratory Personnel.
Students may choose to fulfill all Biology major degree requirements prior to entering the clinical program (see section C of the "Degree Requirements" below).
