Radiation Sciences: Web-based

In 2003 the Department of Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences established a Baccalaureate degree completion program that is 100% online. The online degree completion program is for persons with clinic experience holding a professional credential in nuclear medicine, radiography, radiation therapy, or sonography. The degree offered is a Bachelor of Science in Radiation Sciences.

All Classes are online to allow the working adult to obtain his/her bachelor degree. The program is set up to be completed in 18 months but students may take classes at their own pace creating their own timeline for graduation.
