Medical Imaging Sciences

The B.S. in Medical Imaging Sciences includes a minor in biology, and is a joint-degree program with the Rutgers School of Health Professions (Rutgers-SHP).

You will spend the first three years taking science and General Education classes, and then apply for admission to Rutgers-SHP. Upon acceptance, you’ll spend your fourth year taking specialized courses in one of four areas: cardiac sonography, diagnostic medical sonography, vascular sonography, or nuclear medicine technology.

To earn a B.S. in Medical Imaging Sciences, you must successfully complete at least 120 credits, including:

  • General Education courses
  • Biology courses (24 credits)
  • Chemistry courses (12 credits)
  • Mathematics or computer science course (3–4 credits)
