If you’re interested in a bachelor’s degree in laboratory sciences and biotechnology, there’s no better choice than an Associate+Bachelor's Degree Program, which offers you access to high-caliber academic programs and unparalleled academic support.
You start with an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Laboratory Science Technology. This program provides you with the courses and credits you need to enroll in and successfully complete a bachelor's program.
Upon successful completion of your AAS program in LST with a grade-point average of 3.0 or better, you will have several options from which to choose. You can enroll in RIT's School of Individualized Study, where you can pursue a bachelor’s degree in applied arts and science with concentrations in laboratory science technology and biotechnology studies. Or you can enroll in RIT’s School of Chemistry and Materials Science, where you can work towards a bachelor’s degree in chemistry or biochemistry.
Qualified LST students who have completed their AAS degree also have continued their education in RIT’s College of Science and College of Health Sciences and Technology. Students have pursued bachelor’s degrees in biology, biotechnology and molecular bioscience, biomedical sciences and environmental science.
The length of time required to obtain a bachelor’s degree upon completion of the AAS program and the amount of credits transferred from the LST curriculum vary by major.
