Executive Style Master of Science

Overview

The field of Radiologic Sciences is rapidly growing and the learning curve never ends. This profession requires highly skilled and flexible practitioners, as well as proficient, qualified directors, administrators and educators. The Master of Science in Radiologic and Imaging Sciences is the only one of its kind on the East Coast.

This executive style program can be completed in 12 months or 24 months. It offers tracks in education or management in the radiologic and imaging sciences. Students may also select a clinical track in PET/CT (for students credentialed in Nuclear Medicine) or ICVT (for students credentialed in Radiography, Cardiac Sonography or Vascular Sonography). Contact Frances Gilman for more information.

Program Length

12 months full time
