Bellevue College is proud to offer the bachelor of applied science (BAS) degree in Radiation and Imaging Sciences.

This is a career-oriented bachelor degree program developed specifically to meet the career advancement needs of practicing professionals like you. This is the only program of its kind in the state and among only a few in the nation. The degree completion program is designed for certified professionals in radiologic technology, diagnostic ultrasound, radiation therapy, or nuclear medicine. The first 90 credits of the degree are fulfilled by entrance prerequisites. The second half of the degree offers a professionally relevant curriculum that helps students achieve their goals. Bellevue College has received funding through a grant awarded under the President’s Community-Based Job Training Grants, as implemented by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment & Training Administration to add two new concentrations in Medical Dosimetry and Radiologist Assistant.
