Diagnostic Radiology Program Approved to Offer Bachelor of Science Degree

The Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) has approved the continued programmatic accreditation of the Diagnostic Radiology Program in the Department of Radiologic Sciences.  A substantive change request was required of the program due to the transition from an associate of science to a bachelor of science granting program.

The Diagnostic Radiology Program received an eight year accreditation in 2009. Students have been able to earn an associate of science degree in Diagnostic Radiology at Boise State before deciding whether to continue pursuing a Boise State Bachelor of Science degree in an emphasis area. The JRCERT has approved the bachelor’s degree curriculum in Diagnostic Radiology for the remaining accreditation period. The program will seek re-accreditation in 2017, when the original accreditation for the associate program would have expired.

Beginning August 27, students can earn a Bachelor of Science in one of five emphasis areas: Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Computed Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Diagnostic Radiology and General Studies. All emphasis areas are accredited through various agencies.  Please visit for more information related to applying to any of these emphasis programs.
