About This Program

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 three areas: cardiac sonography, diagnostic medical sonography, or vascular sonography.
