What will I learn?

Medical radiation science is a diverse, challenging and progressive field that combines science, health and anatomy/physiology. The Bachelor of Medical Radiation Science from Charles Sturt University offers you the theoretical knowledge and professional skills to practise as a qualified medical radiation scientist. Taught by industry-based professionals, this medical radiation science degree has a high success rate in industry employment.

You can also choose to specialise in one of three areas: nuclear medicine and molecular imaging, diagnostic radiography, or radiation therapy. You’ll enrol directly into your specialisation, but build a strong foundation of core knowledge in your first year.
