Each of these degrees requires only 30 credits and can be completed 100% Online.  Students work at their own pace, with many completing the degree in as little as 2 years.


Our program offers a diverse curriculum that prepares students to advance in their careers and become leaders within the medical laboratory profession.  All of our graduate degrees can be completed entirely online but we also offer optional one week hands on laboratory courses throughout the summer as well.  While most of our courses are taught remotely, our faculty and student advisors are always just an email, phone call or video chat away.  We pride ourselves on the connections we build with our students throughout their time in and outside of the program.

Our faculty bring their research knowledge and real-world experiences into every class they teach.  Not only are they experts in their field, but they are also experts in online education.  The BLD Program has been pioneering distance learning in the medical laboratory sciences for over twenty years.

Depending on the masters degrees you will only need to take 30-31 credits, which means our program is affordable for in-state and out state residents.

 Not ready to commit to a master's program just yet, we understand that's why we also offer an online certificate program.

Applying to the program is easy and if you have any questions, contact us and we will guide you through every step of the way.  If you are not ready for a master's be sure to check out our online certificate programs.


One of our program advisors will connect with you to answer any questions you might have.
