Bachelor of Radiologic Sciences Curriculum

The curriculum includes, but is not limited to, the professional curriculum outlined by the Standards and Guidelines of an Accredited Educational Program for the Radiographer established by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).

Candidates for the radiologic sciences degree must have completed the prescribed curriculum (below), encompassing 22 continuous months of study, with an overall cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or better on a 4.0 scale on all work at UMMC. Following satisfactory completion of all requirements, students will be awarded the bachelor of science in radiologic sciences from the University of Mississippi and are eligible to take the examination for certification and registration offered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Most states require licensure in order to practice; however, state licensures are usually based on the results of the ARRT examination. Be advised that a misdemeanor or felony conviction may affect a graduate's ability to sit for the ARRT examination or attain state licensure.
