Diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology is the 225th most popular degree in America, with 861 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It narrowly lost to #224 Culinary Arts.
The degree is offered at a total of 59 colleges across the nation, and is the 249th most widely offered degree. It is only offered at 1% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.
It is also worth noting that 60% of colleges offering diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology are public making it a pretty accessible field.
The far west produces the most diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology graduates, largely led by Oregon Institute of Technology, while it’s the Cascade Collegiate Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, Pennsylvania ranks highest, with particular help from Misericordia University and Mount Aloysius College.
All that being said, no individual school produces more diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology graduates than George C Wallace State Community College-Hanceville, which graduated 86 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology). More students studied diagnostic medical sonography and ultrasound technology as a percentage of total students at Platt College-Riverside than any other college.
