Midwestern State University (MSU) offers the first discipline-specific Master of Science in Radiologic Sciences (MSRS) degree of its kind in the United States. The MSRS program features a holistic approach to graduate education with options for specialization, providing a natural transition for working technologists interested in advancing to higher levels of administration, education, or advanced clinical practice.
The MSRS Program features three (3) majors: Education, Administration, and Radiologist Assistant. This program provides opportunities for radiologic sciences professionals regardless of their location. The unique curriculum design permits working professionals to complete the degree with minimal on-campus requirements while preserving the benefits of face-to-face contact with fellow graduate students. Courses offered during fall and spring semesters, generally require only two visits to MSU. Summer courses include assignments to be completed before and after a single visit to campus. Most of the course requirements are completed independently and coordinated electronically. A limited number of masters level courses are available online.
Competitive scholarships are available to qualified applicants and for students in Academic Common Market states there is an established mechanism to waive of out-of-state tuition fees.
Students benefit from the diverse experiences of their colleagues. Approximately sixty students are enrolled in the program from all over the United States and several foreign countries. All Radiologic Science disciplines and modalities are represented in the student population including radiography, radiation therapy, nuclear medicine, and sonography.
The highly qualified and enthusiastic program faculty have advanced degrees, many combined years of practical experience in the field and are very active leaders in Radiologic Sciences.
The mission of the MSRS program is to prepare students to be leaders in education, administration, and advanced clinical practice in radiologic sciences. The learning outcomes of the MSRS program are that the MSRS students will
NOTE: Applicants to the Radiologist Assistant major must complete additional admission requirements including an interview. Applicants to the Radiologist Assistant major must have current ARRT certification in radiography (RT(R)) and must have a minimum of two years clinical experience.
Note: If you are an out-of-state student (residing in a state other than Texas), recent Federal regulations may prohibit you from taking courses from Midwestern State University. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for verification that your state will allow you to take Texas courses. Failure to follow this procedure could prevent students from continuing to take courses and/or graduating from the Radiologic Sciences programs.
