Enhancing the Nuclear Workforce
This new Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree in Health Physics was designed in
response to industry need, specifically to enhance the training and education available
to the local Hanford workforce.
The four-year degree builds directly upon the skills and knowledge developed in the Associate in Applied Science in Nuclear Technology - Radiation Protection Technician program option.
- The degree is considered "stackable," meaning it is a simple transition for most students who have or will earn the AAS in Nuclear Technology - Radation Protection Technician option. The credits earned apply directly to the requirements of this program.
- Classes are offered in a combination of evening and online formats to allow working students to maintain employment.
- The program is eligble for Federal Student Aid and scholarships funded by local Hanford contractors as well as the Nuclear Regulatory Commission are available.
- Classes are taught by industry subject matter experts.
The program is cohort based, a new group of students starts each fall quarter. Each cohort is limted to 20 students.
