Program Description

Associate in Science Degree

The Radiologic Technology Program is a 21-month, competency-based program, preparing students for entry-level careers as radiographers in a variety of clinical settings. Accreditation has been granted by the Joint Committee on Education in Radiology Technology (JRCERT). Students who successfully complete the approved course of study are then eligible to apply for examination by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).

The Radiologic Technology program is a selective and highly competitive admissions program. All applicants are reviewed by a committee using the rubrics to ensure fair and ethical selection practices.

Upon completion of the Radiologic Technology program, students should be able to apply principles of radiographic exposure with knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and positioning to determine the best demonstration of anatomical structures.

The technologist is also responsible for the care, protection, and comfort of the patient. Additional responsibilities include the ongoing monitoring of equipment safety and quality. This requires a level of professional judgment that necessitates quality academic and clinical training. Radiologic technologists are employed by hospitals, clinics, and private contractors.

Radiologic technologists are integral members of the health care profession. With recent advances in imaging technology, radiographers could broaden their professional opportunities in a variety of diagnostic modalities.

Students must be formally admitted into the Radiologic Technology program to take Radiologic Technology concentration courses. Radiology courses are sequential and must be completed in order. Admission to the program is selective and highly competitive.
