B.S. in Medical Imaging Sciences

Pre-Professional Services | Rutgers University Newark

Rutgers University-Newark and the Rutgers School of Health Professions (Rutgers-SHP) offer a joint Bachelor of Science degree in Medical Imaging Sciences. Students choose one of the two programs: Cardiac Sonography and Diagnostic Medical Sonography. Students graduating with degrees in MIS become members of health care teams contributing to the diagnosis and treatment of disease. MIS majors are readily employed in a variety of health care, industrial, governmental, and educational settings.

Medical Imaging Sciences majors complete their prerequisite science and math courses at Rutgers University-Newark. They then apply to Rutgers-SHP in January for admission in September into one of four 15-month programs. Admissions are competitive and so not guaranteed. Minimum admissions requirements include an overall GPA of 2.850, with grades of C or better in all prerequisite science courses taken at Rutgers University-Newark. Students who transfer into Rutgers University-Newark must complete at least half their biology course credits at Rutgers University-Newark to qualify for the joint degree program.
