Bachelor of Science (BS) in Imaging Sciences Curriculum

Program Objectives

Our Bachelor of Science in Imaging Sciences program offers an opportunity for registered radiologic technologists to advance their careers.  

The program offers the radiologic technologist an opportunity for advancement in employment and prepares advanced medical imaging technologists for professional leadership roles. 

This program provides you with the knowledge, skills and professional competencies to perform advanced-level imaging in the following: 

  • Cardiac-interventional (CI) 
  • Computed tomography (CT) 
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) 
  • Vascular-interventional (VI) 
  • Other advanced imaging modalities 

You will complete the training required to be eligible for postprimary pathway to certification in Computed Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Cardiac-Interventional or Vascular-Interventional offered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. 

An entry-level Magnetic Resonance Imaging track is available to students who are not licensed in radiography or nuclear medicine. 

Licensure or eligibility for accreditation in the practice of medical radiation technology by the Illinois Emergency Management Agency is not required for successful completion of the MRI track. MRI is a non-ionizing imaging modality.  

The MRI entry-level track is recognized as an MRI primary-pathway educational program by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.  

Graduation Requirements

Degree requirements that must be met include the following: 

  • Satisfactory completion of all general education coursework as listed 
  • Completion of each required Imaging Sciences professional course with a grade of C or better 
  • Cumulative GPA of 2.5 or better 
  • Successfully complete a comprehensive end-of-program competency assessment 
  • Completion of 16 hours of community service
  • • Successful completion of the Professional Roadmaps to Opportunities (PRO) Seminar series as outlined in the student’s program handbook.
