Make a Difference in Fertility Treatments

Gain the highly specialized knowledge you need to contribute to fertility solutions. Typically found only in master's level programs, you can now be a part of the George Washington University's robust Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences (BSHS) program, and graduate qualified to take the Embryology and Andrology board of certification examination (ELS and ALS) offered by the American Board of Bioanalysis (ABB).

In our BSHS in Clinical Embryology and Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) program, you'll complete coursework, hands-on labs, and practicums in human embryology, andrology, cryobiology, and preimplantation genetic diagnosis to learn the current developments and techniques in endocrinology and andrology.

You'll graduate with confidence and valuable experience to meet the demand of this growing field.

Program Highlights

  • A practical, hands-on degree for an in-demand field — rarely offered at the bachelor's level
  • Graduate qualified to take the Embryology and Andrology board of certification examination offered by the American Board of Bioanalysts (ABB)

Credit Hours: 60
Courses: 20
Time to Completion: In as few as 2 years
Cost: $635 per credit hour
Residency Requirement: You'll spend 12 weeks at a local site in a rotation of clinical experiences covering each area of a fertility laboratory.

Careers with a BSHS in Clinical Embryology and Assisted Reproductive Technology

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), there were 284,385 ART cycles performed by reporting clinics in 2017, not including cycles in which new treatment procedures were being evaluated. The CDC report says that while the use of ART has doubled over the last decade, it's still rare in comparison to the potential demand1 — meaning there's a wealth of growth opportunity. As a graduate of the online BSHS in Clinical Embryology and ART, you qualify to work in:

  • Assisted reproductive technology laboratories
  • Biotechnology companies
  • Research institutes and hospitals
