Notre Dame offers two ways to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Radiological Sciences:
Our partnerships provide a pathway for Women's College students to complete the clinical training requirements as well as a smooth transfer process for working adult learners completing a bachelor's degree.
Admission to clinical certification programs is highly competitive and acceptance can not be guaranteed. It is important to thoroughly understand the admissions criteria for your clinical program of interest and regularly confer with the program coordinator as you prepare for clinical study.
This is a sample program of study for radiological sciences majors in the Women's College prior to clinical training (required for Radiography, recommended for all modalities). Students should select courses with the assistance of the program coordinator.

Designed to meet the needs of Radiological Sciences professionals in mid-level positions, our program awards credit for your clinical experience and offers a path to completing your bachelor’s degree.
Typical Radiological Sciences students in the College of Adult Undergraduate Studies are working in the field and take classes part-time in the evenings or on weekends. Many have clinical experience and wish to develop new skills while earning a bachelor’s degree.
After completing an initial clinical concentration, our program offers professional training through either an advanced imaging program or concentrated study in business. The business concentration includes courses in management, finance, and communications to prepare for supervisory roles in your health care organization.
In addition to professional training, the following courses are required for the BS in Radiological Sciences:
For the professional training portion of the degree, first choose (1) initial clinical concentration.
Note: Certified technologists who have completed a clinical training program will be awarded a block of credits toward the degree.
Then, choose either a six-month Advanced Imaging Program or one year of concentrated study in Business.
*Radiography students are required to take the Business concentration.
(prior completion of Radiography required)
Develop the skills to be an effective leader in your health care organization through one of two tracks:
Driven by an aging population and advances in technology, there is a great demand for professionals in this field.
Once you complete all academic and clinical programs, you are qualified to become a licensed medical imaging technologist by passing the national registry exam.
