Curriculum

McNeese State University's Program in Radiologic Sciences is in the discipline of Radiography. The curriculum of the program is designed to prepare entry level technologists at an enhanced level supporting post-primary specialty certification preparation in advanced clinical practice. The curriculum consists of two phases, pre-professional and professional. The pre-professional phase comprises the first three semesters of the program and consists of general academic requirements together with the basic physical and biological sciences.  The final 2 1/2 years comprise the professional program.  Acceptance into the professional phase is on a competitive basis.

A counselor/adviser should be consulted on a semester basis to determine program sequence.
