Eric Miller

The Allied Health Technology concentration is designed for students who expect to enter a professional school for diagnostic medical sonography, nuclear medicine technology, or radiation therapy technology after completing an appropriate pre-professional curriculum.

This concentration leads to an MTSU degree through completion of 120 credit hours at MTSU, or completion of at least 90 course hours, acceptance into a professional school, and successful completion of the professional program (3+1). At least 36 credit hours of junior and senior (3000-4000 level) courses must be completed with an average grade of C (2.00 GPA) or better. With approval of the dean of the college, a student may complete 12 of the last 30 hours at another college or university or by CLEP. For students completing a 3+1 program, a minimum of 21 semester hours of junior and senior (3000-4000 level) courses must be completed at MTSU.

Admission to the MTSU pre-professional program does not assure admission to a professional program. Selection for admission is competitive and is made by the admissions committee of the respective program according to its selection standards.
