Radiological Sciences

With our bachelor's degree program, you can earn your certification in various areas of radiological sciences in collaboration with local hospitals.


Driven by an aging population and advances in technology, there is a great demand for professionals in this field. Through studies in liberal arts, science and mathematics, our students broaden their professional knowledge and competence, strengthen their critical thinking and communication skills, develop their leadership potential and deepen their ethical commitments.

The technical curriculum provides both theoretical training and practical hands-on clinical experience.

Our typical student studies at Notre Dame to fulfill the general education requirements for a Bachelor of Science and the requisite science and mathematics courses. You must complete at least 60 college credits before starting the clinical program.

While there is great demand for professionals in this field, admission is highly competitive. Under the guidance of our radiology program coordinator, you can begin the application process for clinical studies.

Because admission to these programs is so highly competitive, all students must monitor the qualifications for admission to programs in which they are interested. They are expected to confer regularly with the coordinator as they prepare for clinical study. Our students complete the clinical program at The Johns Hopkins Hospital, and must apply for acceptance into the clinical portion of the program. Acceptance to a specific institution is not guaranteed.

With completion of both the academic and clinical programs, students are qualified to become licensed medical imaging technicians.

Radiological Sciences students are exempt from the fine arts and foreign language requirements.
