Pre-Professional Programs Major, BS – Nuclear Medicine Technology Concentration

UTMCK has discontinued sponsorship of the Nuclear Medicine Technology program; therefore, effective immediately, the College of Arts & Sciences is no longer offering Nuclear Medicine Technology as a major.

Requirements for the Bachelor of Science • Pre-Professional Programs Major • Nuclear Medicine Technology Concentration


The nuclear medicine technology curriculum requires a minimum of 90 hours credit, including the college’s Basic Skills and Distribution requirements and the University General Education Requirement, prior to application for  admission to a final year of study at the University of Tennessee Medical Center, Knoxville. Students who complete the nuclear medicine technology program at UTMCK receive the Bachelor of Science with a major in  pre-professional programs with a concentration in nuclear medicine technology from the College of Arts and Sciences.

Admission to the nuclear medicine technology program at UTMCK is at the discretion of the admissions committee of that department; successful completion of the three-year curriculum noted below does not assure admission to the program.

* Meets University General Education Requirement.

1 Mathematics placement depends on high school courses and grades, ACT scores, and BA/BS requirements. MATH 130  or any calculus course is a prerequisite to Physics. At least two courses must satisfy the University General Education Requirement in Quantitative Reasoning.

2 Students who have previously completed BIOL 101  and BIOL 102  may substitute these two courses for BIOL 130 .

3 This plan assumes a student has had enough language background in high school to begin an intermediate language sequence at UT, Knoxville.

4 Bachelor of Science students must complete a minimum of 6 credits from at least two departments for the social science requirement. The two courses must satisfy the University General Education Requirement in social sciences.
