Discover the secrets of cell structure and function through the pre-cytotechnology program offered UW-Platteville Department of Biology. Pre-Cytotechnology allows you to apply your skills in microscopy and staining techniques to determine aberrations in cellular structures, aiding in the diagnosis process. While cytotechnologists are often integral members of the healthcare team, they can also work as health educators, laboratory managers and administrators, or researchers in this growing field.

UW-Platteville offers a three plus one articulation with the Madison College biotechnology program and the UW-Madison School of Cytotechnology and State Lab of Hygiene. You will need to complete three years of coursework at UW-Platteville for admission to these programs or other professional schools.

Outside the classroom, you can build on your experience through student clubs and organizations, or undergraduate research. Plus, we offer a wide variety of campus support programs like STEM Living and Learning Communities, mentoring, and others that allows you to create a student experience unique to you and your goals.
