Radiologic Technology (2155) - Associate in Science Degree

Radiographers are medical professionals and members of the health care team who:

  • Perform diagnostic imaging procedures such as X-ray examinations of the bones, heart, lungs, and abdomen to be used for analyzing medical issues
  • Work closely with doctors in all medical specialties and with radiologists who interpret the images to either diagnose or rule out disease and injury
  • Work in a variety of health care settings:
          - Hospitals
          - Urgent care centers and free standing emergency centers
          - Doctor's offices and
          - Diagnostic imaging centers

The Radiologic Technology program is a limited access program. Students are admitted once per year.

Students completing the program are eligible to take the national certification examination in radiography administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. ARRT certification is recognized throughout the country.
