The required core courses (60 semester hours) are transferred upon entry into the program, and 30 semester hours are granted for prior certification in Nuclear Medicine Technology. University professional courses make up 34 additional semester hours required to earn the B.S.R.S./NMT degree in three semesters. The program runs one calendar year starting summer semester from May to May.
Students must have access to a highspeed (DSL or cable) personal computer. Most student and faculty communication, projects and research require Internet interaction and many lectures are presented online for repeated viewing for both distance and campus students. Faculty and technical staff are available for technical and instructional support seven days a week.
After completing department requirements, upper-division courses will be credited by proof of certification in nuclear medicine technology. 30 hours of upper division course credit will be applied toward the BSRS degree.
