Radiologic Sciences

 

Radiation Therapy Program


Radiation therapy is an exciting, rewarding and challenging field. Radiation Therapists deliver daily radiation treatments to cancer patients to ensure the treatments are accurately and safely administered. Radiation therapists must possess strong communication skills, be detail oriented, be able to work with all members of the oncology team and be comfortable using state of the art technology.

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 who are seeking certification in radiation therapy.
  • The post-baccalaureate certificate in radiation therapy is open ONLY to students who already hold a baccalaureate degree in radiologic science and wish to seek certification in radiation therapy.
