Welcome to NDSU's Department of Allied Sciences
The Department of Allied Sciences in the College of Health Professions offers three undergraduate majors leading to a Bachelor of Science degree: Medical Laboratory Science, Radiologic Sciences, and Respiratory Care.
The department's mission is to prepare students with the knowledge, skills, and professional traits necessary to become competent, compassionate, and contributing professionals in their career choice of Medical Laboratory Science, Radiologic Sciences or Respiratory Care. In support of this mission, the department and its affiliated hospital programs offer a curriculum that promotes the development of a graduate who thinks critically and independently, whose behavior is guided by ethical and professional values, and who is prepared for lifelong learning and leadership in their profession.
To learn more about each major, profession, required courses and internship, please visit:
- Bachelor of Science, major in Medical Laboratory Science (MLS)
- Bachelor of Science, major in Radiologic Sciences (RS)
- Bachelor of Science, major in Respiratory Care (RC)
Three unique educational specializations are available as an RS major at NDSU:
- diagnostic medical sonography
Students interested in MLS, RC, and/or RS should plan to meet with an allied sciences academic advisor while exploring career options and upon declaring an allied sciences major to create a suitable plan of study for successful completion of degree requirements.
