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.”

What You’ll LEARN at Weber

You will learn the necessary skills to become a radiation therapist. Courses cover topics such as patient care, simulation procedures, treatment devices, treatment procedures, treatment planning, particle therapy and radiation safety

What You CAN DO After Weber

Upon graduation, you’ll become qualified to become a certified radiation therapist, administering targeted doses of radiation to patients’ bodies to treat cancer and other diseases.

You may also go on to WSU’s Master of Science in Radiologic Sciences program. If you have questions, contact a WSU Career Advisor.

Faculty Perspective

When students complete this program, they can hit the ground running in their careers because of the hours of effort that they put into working with actual cancer patients at their individual clinical sites or rotations.

The WSU radiation therapy program is presented to students by healthcare professions who actually work in the field. The instructors for the program are therapists, dosimetrists or physicists. This allows for the delivery of current and advanced innovation resulting in an exceptional educational experience.
