The Master of Science in Health Physics from Colorado State University focuses on gaining an in-depth understanding of the risks and benefits associated with radiation in order to protect public health and the environment.


Key Features

Students of the Health Physics program at Colorado State University also have the opportunity to choose a medical health physics track, which prepares students for health physics opportunities in a clinical setting, such as a hospital Radiation Safety Officer, and opens the door to a medical physics residency or entry level medical physics position in a radiotherapy clinic or radiology department.​

The Department of Environmental and Radiological Health Sciences is home to one of the largest environmental health programs in the nation, and the only one that incorporates radiological health into its core curriculum. 

Students and researchers in environmental health investigate how natural and built environments affect human and animal health and seek solutions to minimize negative health consequences of environmental and workplace exposures. Radiological health has a long tradition at CSU focused on the biological effects of radiation, including laboratory studies of the damaging effects of radiation, and clinical uses of radiation in diagnostic imaging and cancer therapy.


This program is accredited by the Applied and Natural Science Accreditation Commission of ABET.
