In partnership with Thomas Jefferson University, Immaculata offers a Bachelor of Science in Allied Health with a concentration in Bioscience Technologies. You will be introduced to laboratory science, practice, and research, where you will be trained in lab methodology and conducting tests that diagnose and prevent disease. You will also gain experience through practica in clinical and research laboratories at prestigious hospitals, medical centers, and laboratories.
Within the Bioscience Technologies program, you may choose from the following specialties:
Biotechnology—Study information obtained at the molecular level, such as RNA, DNA and proteins, to develop new therapeutic, diagnostic and environmental products or to solve problems in health, pharmaceuticals, forensics, agriculture, food technology, forestry and wildlife management, veterinary medicine, and the fight against bioterrorism.
Cytotechnology—Evaluate cell specimens using microscopes, automated screening systems, and laboratory techniques; detect, interpret and report cancerous cells, precancerous changes, infections, inflammatory patterns and treatment-related conditions.
Medical Laboratory Science—Conduct health screenings using sophisticated technology to test patient specimens and interpret results, checking for abnormalities, markers of disease, and infectious microorganisms.
You may also choose to complete a five-year combined bachelor's and master's degree in Bioscience Technologies.
