Cytotechnology Emphasis


  • UW-Green Bay is affiliated with two schools of cytotechnology: the Mayo Clinic and UW-Madison.
  • Students complete 92 credits at UW-Green Bay, including all general education requirements, and then take an 11-month, 32-credit clinical internship at one of the cooperating institutions.
  • After completion of the internship, students will graduate with a degree in Human Biology and be eligible for professional certification.
