Radiologic Sciences Overview
The accelerated Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Sciences (B.S.R.S.) program is designed to provide registered radiographers the knowledge needed to advance in the radiology profession in the roles of leader, educator, and/or administrator. The program presents higher advanced skills of Radiologic Sciences for optimum patient care in advanced modalities and effective leadership in administrative positions.
Created using the American Society of Radiologic Technology’s (ASRT) BSRS curriculum guidelines, ECPI University’s BSRS program provides a broader knowledge base and skill set beyond the entry-level radiographer. Advanced standing or transfer credits may be awarded for past radiography coursework. The program is delivered in an online format with a part-time or full-time option.
With ECPI University’s accelerated, year-round schedule, you could earn your Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Sciences in 3 semesters for full time or 5 semesters for half time*
*Assumes acceptable transfer of credits from an associate degree in medical radiography
Radiologic Sciences Possible Career Track
Earning a B.S.R.S. can allow you to pursue your master’s degree and become a Radiological Assistant (RA). Radiologist assistants are experienced, registered radiographers who have obtained additional education and certification that qualify them to serve as radiologist extenders. They work under the supervision of a radiologist to provide patient care in the diagnostic imaging environment.
