Radiation Therapy Program

Radiation therapy is an exciting, rewarding and challenging field. Radiation Therapists operate sophisticated equipment and communicate with patients who receive daily treatments. They work with physicians to make sure that radiation therapy treatments are efficient, of high quality, recorded accurately, and as pleasant as possible for the patient. Most patients are outpatients who receive radiation therapy treatments five days a week for up to six weeks or more.

Programs Offered

  • The baccalaureate degree in radiologic science with a track in radiation therapy is open to students without any medical background, as well as radiographers and therapists.
  • The post-baccalaureate certificate in radiation therapy is open to students who already hold a baccalaureate degree in radiologic science.
