Welcome to the Department of Radiologic Sciences – Celebrating 45 Years of Medical Imaging Education

Celebrating 45 years in 2017, the Department of Radiologic Sciences at Midwestern State University (MSU) is leading medical imaging education through quality classroom instruction and detailed clinical practice.

Whether you are a student looking to start a career in the medical imaging profession or a registered technologist wanting to complete a bachelor’s degree or pursue a master’s degree, MSU offers a program for you.

Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Technology (BSRT)

This entry-level BSRT program prepares students for careers as radiologic technologists. Upon completion of the BSRT degree, graduates are eligible to take the radiography and computed tomography certification examinations administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). In addition, graduates may be eligible for licensure by the state of Texas as a medical radiologic technologist (MRT). The BSRT program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT). Click here to learn more about the BSRT program.

 Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Sciences (BSRS)

The BSRS program provides registered imaging technologists and registry-eligible students the opportunity to complete a bachelor’s degree completely online. At MSU, all undergraduate distance education students receive in-state tuition. Click here to learn more about the BSRS program.


Computed Tomography (CT) Certificate

The CT certificate program provides medical imaging technologists and students the opportunity to pursue a post-primary certification in CT. Although the program is online, students are required to make their own clinical arrangements to fulfill the ARRT clinical experience requirements for CT. Upon successful completion of the program, students are eligible to take the CT certification examination administered by the ARRT. Click here to learn more about the CT certification program.

Master of Science in Radiologic Sciences (MSRS)

The MSRS program offers graduate students three areas of concentration: administration, education, or radiologist assistant (RA). The program is offered in a hybrid format and allows imaging sciences professionals to complete the degree in two years with minimal on-campus requirements. There are six required on-campus visits for administration and education majors and 10 required on-campus visits for RA majors. RA majors are also required to complete extensive clinical requirements. Click here to learn more about the MSRS program.


The Radiologic Sciences Programs use an outside proctoring service known as ProctorU for courses in which students complete final exams or competency exams online.  This service is an additional cost to the student.


  • MSU’s entry-level radiography program transitioned from an associate to a bachelor’s degree in 2014. Today, the BSRT program is the only entry-level bachelor’s degree in radiography in the state of Texas that is accredited by the JRCERT.
  • MSU is credited for starting what is believed to be the first radiologic sciences distance education program in the United States (1974). Today, there are over 350 imaging sciences professionals enrolled in the BSRS program.
  • MSU was the first educational institution in the United States to offer a discipline-specific graduate degree (1995). Today, the MSRS program continues to be a leader in providing quality education for medical imaging professionals and is one of only four radiologic sciences graduate programs in the United States.
  • MSU’s RA program was one of the original four advanced clinical practice programs in the United States started with grant money from the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT).
  • The Department of Radiologic Sciences at MSU includes four energized radiographic rooms, computed radiography equipment, computer labs, interactive whiteboards, and extensive selections of audio-visual resources.
  • The faculty members in the Department of Radiologic Sciences at MSU are highly motivated and are leaders in the medical imaging profession.

“I chose Midwestern State because of its reputation in the radiologic sciences profession. The flexible programs and supportive faculty helped me achieve my professional goals.”
