The B.S. degree in Radiologic Sciences offers individuals the opportunity to pursue three separate concentrations—advanced clinical/health management concentration for the associate degree radiographer, diagnostic medical sonography, and radiation therapy. Diagnostic medical sonography and radiation therapy are open to individuals with either a health professional A.S. degree background or a non-health professions background.

To provide the medical community with radiographers qualified to perform advanced procedures in cardiovascular interventional technology, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging technology and/or picture archiving and communication systems and individuals with entry level skills in diagnostic medical sonography and radiation therapy.
3. To involve students in professional continuing education activities in an effort to instill a desire for lifelong learning.
4. To involve the student in the community we serve.
