Studying Radiation Therapy at Weber State
Weber State’s radiation therapy degree trains students to become radiation therapists who want to make a difference by helping treat cancer and other diseases.
Radiation Therapy Highlights
Upon completion of the radiation therapy program, you’ll become eligible for the national certification examination given by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (AART). This certification is accepted by many states that require therapists to be licensed.
Out-of-state students may join our regional program, which allows you to complete clinical hours at a healthcare facility in your community and do most of your coursework off campus.
Beyond the Classroom
As a radiation therapy major, you will gain practical experience while completing 24 hours of clinical education per week in a WSU-affiliated healthcare facility.

“I chose radiation therapy because cancer has affected many of my family members and close family friends, so I feel a close connection with the efforts to fight/treat cancer. Positive job growth and wages that would enable me to support my family are factors too.”
