General Information

Radiologic Sciences is a comprehensive term that is applied to the science of administering radiation, ultrasound or magnetism to provide information for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and injuries.

  • For those individuals who are seeking entry into our profession, the Armstrong Department of Radiologic Sciences offers a bachelor of science degree with special emphasis in one of five specific career specialties: Radiation Therapy, Radiography, Nuclear Medicine, Diagnostic Medical Sonography, and Cardiovascular/Interventional Science. No previous background in the radiologic sciences is required to enter any of these programs.
  • For those persons who are already working in the radiologic sciences, we offer three pathways to advancement.
    • Bridge Program where you can earn a bachelor's degree emphasizing your current discipline
    • Post-baccalaureate certification programs where you can earn a certificate in either radiation therapy or advanced imaging. This is for you if you already have a bachelor's degree and wish to be certified in radiation therapy or advanced imaging modalities in radiography
    • Special options allow the practitioner who does not have a bachelor's degree to become certified in a new area while earning a bachelor's degree
