The Part-Time Bachelor’s in Biomedical Laboratory & Clinical Sciences

  • Quality professional education, convenient schedules

    Offered part- and full-time on campus in collaboration with Boston University’s School of Medicine, the BU Metropolitan College (MET) bachelor’s in Biomedical Laboratory & Clinical Sciences prepares students for jobs in a field projected to see 16% job growth through 2024.

  • Engaged faculty, powerful networks

    MET and School of Medicine faculty bring hands-on experience in biotech, clinical research, ethico-legal issues, and bioinformatics to the classroom, providing practical insights and in-depth understanding that you can directly apply in your own career. Valuable networks can be established through local externships and your fellow professionals in class.

  • Academic excellence, international recognition

    A BU degree is highly respected, and can open doors to a promotion, a better job, or a new career. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, those with a bachelor’s degree earn, on average, 43% more per week than those with an associate’s—and more than 50% than those with some college and no degree.
