Even Before Pandemic - UNLV NewsCenter Even Before Pandemic - UNLV NewsCenter Posted: 05 Oct 2020 12:00 AM PDT Even before the coronavirus pandemic propelled UNLV into remote learning in the spring, online courses at UNLV were prevalent.  "There's been a steady decrease in the number of students that have never taken an online course," said Elizabeth Barrie, the director of the Office of Online Education . She recently presented during The State of Online Education webinar event. It highlighted some of the initiatives and cross-campus partnerships that contribute to student achievement and shared how faculty prepared for online learning through the summer. She noted that 95% of students who graduated in spring 2020 with an undergraduate degree had taken at least one online course. And, compared to past years, there has been an increase in the number of students who have taken more than 30 credits, or two semesters, online.

"We live in a remarkable time with regards to medical advancement and technology," Best Health Degrees editors explain; "That advancement is front and center in Radiation Sciences. Advances in X-rays, diagnostic scanners and treatment modalities are constant." As the editors state, "Depending on your education, certification and licensure, employment in a variety of clinical settings is available. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) suggests job increases in this field are at 7% between 2019-2029, which is much faster than other professions." A master's in radiation sciences can offer working professionals the chance to "take courses at your own pace, while continuing to work and meet your family and personal obligations." In addition, "A Master's of Science degree in Radiation Sciences will advance your technical ability and skill as well as your career."

The editors of Best Health Degrees build their rankings on accredited institutions that have a real impact on graduates' careers, both online or on-campus. According to the editors, "In 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic demonstrated online/hybrid education benefits. These online/hybrid degrees are taught by the same faculty, using the same curriculum, and with a minimum of on-campus attendance." "While you can become a radiology technician/technologist with an Associate or Bachelor degree," the editors note, "a Masters degree in Radiation Sciences can open new career avenues to you in expertise, administration, and/or management." Because the people who can benefit from a master's in radiation science have so many different needs, Best Health Degrees editors provide a variety of options to help students find the right program for them.
