Master of Science in Radiologic Sciences

The mission of the Master of Science in Radiologic Sciences (MSRS) is to provide a quality program integrating education, research, and service in order to meet the needs of the profession and improve healthcare of the people and communities we serve. The MSRS program is a comprehensive program that will prepare students to enter the professional workforce with a graduate degree in radiology, specializing in either management or education.  The target student population will be individuals who have successfully completed a program of study in the radiologic sciences or health imaging field, holding a baccalaureate degree, currently licensed in a diagnostic imaging modality, and who is seeking to attain a graduate degree and enter either education or management within the broad field of Radiology and Imaging.
