Diagnostic Medical Sonography

Bachelor of Science

At RIT, you can earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Diagnostic Medical Sonography (Ultrasound) in two or four years, including your internship, depending on prior education and experiences. If you're a high school graduate who meets requirements, you may enter a three- year program provided with training in basic science, general education, and specialized coursework in ultrasound, followed by a one year clinical internship.

Associate degree graduates and registered or certified practitioners from a related allied health field can earn a BS degree by entering a two-year, upper-division curriculum including the clinical internship as long as the prior education and experience fulfill the first two years of the program.

If you have taken courses at a college or university or thinking of taking some towards the Bachelor of Science degree, please contact the Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program Director  ( to help ensure a smooth course credit transfer occurs.
