In only one year, you can complete a radiation therapy major for a bachelor of science degree in St. Kate’s College for Adults.
Two tracks are available:
an abbreviated degree-completion pathway for people who have previously earned certification as radiologic technologists at the associate or bachelor’s degree level
a pathway for students who have previously completed bachelor’s degrees in any other field
In both pathways, you’ll meet requirements to become a credentialed radiation therapist.
You will first enroll in St. Kate’s College for Adults to complete any remaining liberal arts and supporting courses outside of the major that you have not yet completed. You may take these courses, which are offered in an evening/weekend/online format, on a part-time basis. Then, in September, you’ll begin a 12-month series of radiation therapy major courses.
You’ll also complete 1,180 hours of hands-on clinical training. Clinical sites include Hennepin County Medical Center, Minneapolis Veterans Medical Center, Park-Nicollet Frauenshuh Cancer Center, and other Twin Cities-area hospitals and clinics.
After completing your bachelor's in radiation therapy, progress into St. Kate's healthcare-focused Master in Business Administration, Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership, or Master of Public Health program.
