3 + 1 (3 Years at Seton Hill, 1 Clinical Year)
After three successful years of study as a medical technology major at Seton Hill, you will devote 12 months to clinical education at an approved school of medical technology. Seton Hill University grants 32 credits for this year of education. After completing the fourth year of the program, the student earns a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree from Seton Hill in medical technology.
4 + 1 (4 Years at Seton Hill, 1 Clinical Year)
If you chose the 4 + 1 program, you will earn a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree with a major in chemistry or biology from Seton Hill. You will complete your studies with one year of clinical education in an approved hospital school. This program takes longer, but allows you to obtain an education that is well suited to later specialization in chemistry or microbiology.
