Sonography Curriculum

Below is a recommended sequencing of prerequisites (year 1) and the required curriculum for years 2, 3, and 4 for the diagnostic medical sonography degree. The prerequisites may be completed on a full-time or part-time basis. For students taking prerequisite courses elsewhere, all prerequisite courses must be completed by the end of the winter term at Kettering College for consideration of fall enrollment.

Note: Acceptance to the sonography program is required for further progression. All SONO courses must be taken in sequence. Non-SONO courses may be taken ahead of schedule, but not delayed.
