Learn to combat cancer with a cytotechnology program
In the fight against cancer, the cytotechnologist plays a crucial role in delivering personalized patient care, and the Marian University Bachelor of Science in Biology-Cytotechnology program helps students translate their love for biology and take on opportunities in a career often dubbed disease detective. Those in the cytotechnology program learn to detect cancer cells in their earliest and potentially most curable stage. Students build skills in in detecting cell abnormalities with a microscope. Our faculty build student confidence through applied learning experiences.
The biology-cytotechnology program demonstrates how to select and perform molecular and immunologic tests for patients, assist clinicians in collecting and evaluating specimens from the body and identify precancerous cells early. Students will learn diagnostic theory and microscopy interpretation and use it to study collected materials.
