Curriculum

The curriculum for our BS Programs in Medical Imaging & Radiation Oncology depends on multiple variables:

1-Year Program

Students in our 1-Year or Part-Time Programs choose one concentration to study. These program options are:

  • 3+1 Bachelor's/Bachelor's Immaculata University Partnership
  • 1-Year Bachelor's
  • Part-Time Advanced Placement BS in Computed Tomography

Students should consult an admissions counselor or a Radiologic Sciences faculty member when choosing their concentration, to determine which is the best option for their future career and/or ensure smooth transition into our Master's Program.

Concentration Options

* This is the only option available for the Part-Time Advanced Placement BS in Computed Tomography.

** Not available for students in the 3+1 Program.

2-Year Program

Students in our 2-Year Dual-Concentration BS Program (including PACE students) choose two concentrations and study one each year. We recommend that students study the concentration they are most interested in working in during their second year.

Your curriculum will vary based on when you study a concentration. The Radiation Therapy curriculum is different depending on whether you study it in your first or second year, and can vary depending on the other concentration you choose to study.

Students must consult an admissions counselor or a Radiologic Sciences faculty member when choosing concentrations, to determine which combination is the best option for their future career.

Note:
A dual-concentration student interested in Computed Tomography, Invasive Cardiovascular Technology and Medical Dosimetry can only take these as a second year option.

Consult an admissions counselor or a Radiologic Sciences faculty member when choosing concentrations to make sure you choose the combination that is right for you.
