The School of Arts and Sciences-Newark at Rutgers University-Newark and the Rutgers School of Health Professions (SHP) offer a joint bachelor of science degree in medical imaging sciences (MIS). Students choose one of the two programs: cardiac sonography and diagnostic medical sonography (the nuclear medicine and vascular technology programs are currently unavailable). 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. 

MIS majors complete their prerequisite science and math courses at Rutgers-Newark. They then apply to SHP in January for admission in September into one of four 15-month programs. Admissions are competitive and are not guaranteed. Minimum admissions requirements include an overall GPA of 2.85, with grades of C or better in all prerequisite science courses taken at Rutgers-Newark. Students who transfer into Rutgers-Newark must complete at least half their biology credits at Rutgers-Newark to qualify for the joint-degree program.


All medical imaging sciences majors must complete these prerequisite courses (60 credits):

Biology Courses:
21:120:200  Concepts in Biology (4)
21:120:201  Foundations of Biology 1: Cell and Molecular Biology (3)

21:120:205  Foundations of Biology 2: Ecology and Evolution (3)
21:120:206  Foundations of Biology 2: Laboratory (1)
21:120:285  Comparative Anatomy of Vertebrates (4)
21:120:340 or NJIT BIOL 340  Mammalian Physiology (4)
21:120:352  Genetics (3)

Chemistry Courses:

21:160:113,114  General Chemistry Lab (1,1)
21:160:335-336  Organic Chemistry (4,4)
21:160:331  Organic Chemistry Lab (2)

Physics Courses:

21:640:114  Precalculus (4) or  21:640:135  Calculus I (4)
21:640:211  Statistics I or NJIT MATH 105 (3)
In addition, MIS majors must complete all of Rutgers-Newark's Core Curriculum requirements, including two writing-intensive courses, before transferring to Rutgers-SHP.  After being accepted into the MIS program, all students must complete the "Medical Terminology for the Imaging Professional" online course before beginning coursework at Rutgers-SHP.
