The Associate in Science (A.S.) in Histologic Technology degree is designed to train and educate competent, ethical, confident, entry-level clinical laboratory professionals in partnership with affiliated health care institutions through classroom and online learning. The program focuses on comprehension and mastery with clinical skill development to prepare graduates to become histotechnologists and histologic technicians who play an integral role in preparing tissue specimens for the microscopic diagnosis of disease.
Selected histologic technology courses are formatted for online courses, while others provide hands-on, in-person instruction. Students will be expected to perform in a professional manner during the campus and practicum phases and must have excellent coordination skills.
