Bachelor of Science in Diagnostic Medical Sonography
Sonography has been ranked by US News Best Jobs as one of the best careers in healthcare and a top career choice across all fields. Diagnostic Medical Sonographers enjoy higher than average salaries and can expect to see good career growth, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Although sonography is a popular field, just 17% of sonographers hold a bachelor’s degree. If you are a licensed sonographer who completed a certificate program or who earned an Associate Degree in Sonography or Health Sciences (with a certificate from a CAAHEP-accredited sonography program), earning your bachelor’s in Diagnostic Medical Sonography can give you the competitive edge you need to advance in the field.
AHU is among the top 10 institutions granting the highest number of online Bachelor of Science in Diagnostic Medical Sonography degrees. Together with our students, our aim is to raise the standards of ultrasound across this field.
