Program Overview

Students who already have completed college coursework related to radiological sciences may be qualified to earn a bachelors degree in Radiological Sciences through Armstrong Atlantic State Universities’ Radiologic Sciences BS Bridge program. This program is designed for students who already have core science credits completed and just require the advanced clinical courses needed to earn a Bachelors of Science in Radiological Sciences.  This degree was designed for individuals who wish to advance their current career in Radiation Therapy, Clinical Supervision, Radiological Education and Radiology production specialists.

To be admitted into this program, students must be a graduate of a joint review committee on education in a Radiological or Nuclear Medicine Technology accredited program.  In addition, students must be currently certified by the AART or NMTCB in radiography, nuclear medicine or radiation therapy.

Many credits will be completed before students enter the program. It is recommended that potential students contact one of Armstrong’s many academic advisors before application to see what courses are required to complete this degree program.  The core of this program is a combination of clinical internship and clinical education courses. The clinical internship can be completed at any accredited clinical education site, allowing students who live outside of Georgia to complete the in-clinic education with minimal travel; 33 credits of advanced clinical education will be completed online through Armstrong’s internet learning program. Students will be able to select a specialization in MRI, CAT and Mammography when choosing their courses.
