Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Science

The Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Science (BSRS) is offered to American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) certified radiologic technologists. The program incorporates the Associate of Science Degree Program. The Program prepares radiologic technologists for Post-Primary certification in radiologic science, supervisory and management roles.

What Can You Do With This Major?
Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Science graduates possess the skills to assume Post-Primary practice in medical imaging and management. Post-Primary specialization is available in Mammography (M), Computed Tomography (CT), and Magnetic Resonance (MR). Graduates who complete the General Education focus may assume roles in supervision and management. Post-Primary radiologic science practitioners and supervision and management are needed throughout the radiologic science profession.

Program Options

Major Coursework
As a Radiologic Science major, your education will be broadened and enriched by our University’s liberal-arts tradition. You’ll follow a core curriculum of philosophy, religious studies, humanities, and social and natural science, and you’ll learn about patient care from spiritual, ethical, and moral perspectives. In addition to patient care issues, you’ll study human anatomy and physiology, biology, physics, and behavioral sciences.

Radiologic Science BSRS Concentration and Certificate courses are offered online. Certificate track option is available to students via distance education.

Real-World Experience
Clinical education courses for Post-Primary Tracks begin in the first semester concurrent with online didactic courses. General Track courses are offered on the Holy Family University Northeast Campus.

Facilities
In addition to classroom and/or online instruction, your Track may benefit from our on-campus energized x-ray lab that includes a state-of-the-art Computed Radiography system, an energized Mammography unit, and quality assurance testing equipment.
