Radiologic Sciences is a medical field that uses ionizing radiation, sound waves and magnetic fields to produce medical images for diagnostic purposes or to treat diseases by combining medical procedures with technology.

Please refer to the Master of Science in Radiologic Sciences (MSRS) 

Radiography

The Radiography program provides integrated didactic instruction with the utilization of on campus x-ray rooms and clinical experience in Radiology departments of the affiliated health facilities. During the course of the program, radiologic physics, anatomy, radiographic procedures, positioning, and patient assessment are taught. The student will participate in clinical education within the affiliate health facilities throughout the program.

The program is 5 continuous semesters. The student qualifies for an Associate of Applied Science degree upon completion of the general education requirements and the professional course work. Upper division elective courses completed during the program may be applied toward a baccalaureate degree.

Diagnostic Medical Sonography

The Diagnostic Medical Sonography program is designed as an advanced discipline of study for two-year graduates of radiography programs or equivalent as determined by the Department of Radiologic Sciences. A student can complete the required courses and be eligible to sit for the national certification examination. The courses offered in Diagnostic Medical Sonography are upper-division and will be accepted as satisfying the requirements for a primary area emphasis for those students who have been accepted into the Bachelor of Science program.

The program and support courses are four (4) semesters in length for the Cardiac Emphasis or the Medical Emphasis and three (3) semesters in length for the Vascular Emphasis. A competency-based evaluation system is utilized throughout the program. A student must achieve a predetermined level of competency in the academic and clinical courses in order to receive grades for the course. The clinical education courses require a minimum of 24 clock hours per calendar week in an affiliated health care facility.

Nuclear Medicine

The Nuclear Medicine program is designed as an advanced discipline of study for ARRT registered technologists or the acceptable equivalent. A student can complete the required courses, obtain a certificate of completion, and be eligible to sit for the national certification examination. The courses offered in the Nuclear Medicine program are upper-division and will be accepted as satisfying the requirements for a primary area emphasis for those students who have been accepted into the Bachelor of Science program.

The program is three (3) full semesters in length, which requires the student to attend in the summer. A competency-based clinical evaluation system is utilized throughout the program. A student must achieve a predetermined level of competency in the academic and clinical courses in order to receive grades for the course. A minimum of 24 clock hours per week of clinical education must be completed in an affiliated health care facility.

Radiation Therapy

The Radiation Therapy program is designed as an advanced discipline of study for graduates of accredited programs. A student can complete the required courses, obtain a certificate of completion, and be eligible to sit for the national certification examination. The courses offered in the Radiation Therapy program are upper-division and will be accepted as satisfying the requirements for a primary area emphasis for those students who have been accepted into the Bachelor of Science program.

The program is three (3) full semesters in length, which requires the student to attend in the summer. A competency-based clinical evaluation system is utilized throughout the program. A student must achieve a predetermined level of competency in the academic and clinical courses in order to receive grades for the course. A minimum of 24 clock hours per week of clinical education must be completed in an affiliated health care facility.

Advanced Radiologic Science

The Advanced Radiologic Sciences program is designed as an advanced discipline of study for ARRT registered technologists  or equivalent as determined by the Department of Radiologic Sciences.  Students in the program must select an area or combination of areas of emphasis.  These areas are designed to meet your career goals in medical imaging modalities and for technical management and educational positions.  The courses offered in the Advanced Radiologic Sciences are upper-division and will be accepted as satisfying the requirements for a primary area emphasis for those students in the Bachelor of Science program. 

The programs are either three (3) or four (4) semesters in length, depending on the emphasis, which requires the student to attend in the summer.  A competency-based clinical evaluation system is utilized throughout the program.  A student must achieve a predetermined level of competency in the academic and clinical courses in order to be eligible to sit for the national certification examinations.  A minimum of 24 clock hours per week of clinical education must be completed in an affiliated health care facility.
