The Shimadzu School of Radiologic Sciences

Welcome the School of Radiologic Sciences

MSU Texas's Radiology program offers several avenues of degree opportunities. Each degree path incorporates a full liberal arts background, as well as advanced level radiology science course work to provide the most employable individual possible.

The on-campus Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Technology (BSRT) program is an entry level program for students to enter the radiology field. This program is offered to students who have completed most of their courses and are wanting to enter the radiology profession.

The Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Sciences (BSRS) program is designed for radiology technologists who would like to continue their education and earn a bachelor's degree. This degree is offered completely (entirely) online, and focuses on advanced radiology topics. Along with the fully remote learning of the BSRS program, MSU Texas offers remote courses for advanced modalities in computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and mammography.

The Master of Science in Radiologic Sciences (MSRS) program is for technologists who wish to earn a Master's degree centered on education, administration, or radiologist assistant. This program is mostly online, but does require a few on-campus seminar days each semester.

Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Technology (BSRT) The BSRT Program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).  The Shimadzu School of Radiologic Sciences entry-level BSRT Program is designed to prepare students for careers as radiographers. The mission of the BSRT program uses a multifaceted approach to prepare students to become competent and compassionate radiologic technologists who demonstrate personal and professional growth as part of a dynamic healthcare team. Upon completion of all program requirements, students will be eligible to take the national certification examination administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).  Additionally, graduates may be eligible for certification by the state of Texas as Medical Radiologic Technologists.
