About the Bachelor of Science - Radiologic Sciences

The B.S. degree in Radiologic Sciences offers individuals the opportunity to pursue three separate concentrations—advanced clinical 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.

The B.S. degree in Medical Imaging Technology is a non-clinical track directed toward Medical Imaging professionals who are seeking a bachelor's degree in their field, but do not require or desire clinical experience in one of the modality tracks offered by the B.S. degree in Radiologic Sciences.  This program is a part of a collaborative degree offered through IU Online Class Connect (IUOCC).  Students who seek this track may be interested in a B.S. degree for personal fulfillment, initial employment (such as medical sales), job advancement (such as a management or education position), or pursuit of a graduate degree.
