Histology is the study of the microscopic anatomy of plant and animal cells and tissue. Histotechnicians and Histotechnologists examine these biological samples under the microscope and prepare them for testing in a laboratory.
In our Histology program, you will learn to detect tissue abnormalities and conduct appropriate testing procedures. Using light and electron microscopes, you will examine thin sections of tissue and learn to differentially identify microscopic structures through histological stains. You will work closely with other professionals in the medical and biological fields and help them reach accurate diagnoses.
We’ve designed our Histology degree and certificate programs to accommodate your busy schedule. You can take classes on-campus or in a hybrid format that combines the best of on-campus and online learning.
Upon graduation, you will be eligible to take the national examination given by the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP), which leads to certification as a Histotechnician (HT). Histology school graduates who possess a bachelor’s degree may be eligible to sit for the Histotechnologist (HTL) national exam. Reflecting the guidelines set forth by our accrediting body, as of June 2016, 100% of Goodwin College Histotechnician graduates have passed the ASCP Board of Registry Certification Exam.
