Why biology cytotechnology?
The Cytotechnology program is a four-year program designed to provide the student with a bachelor of arts degree with a major in Biology Cytotechnology. Saint Mary’s University is affiliated with the cytotechnology 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 cytotechnology and is eligible to take the National Registry Examination of the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP).
Students may choose to fulfill all Biology major degree requirements prior to entering the clinical program (see section C of the "Degree Requirements" below).
