Technical Trades - Radiologic Technology (314C)

Associate in Applied Science Degree

This two-year program is designed to prepare individuals for entry-level employment as a professional radiographer in radiology departments of hospitals, offices of private physicians, and other health care facilities using radiographic procedures. The curriculum enables students to receive credit for successfully earning a certificate in radiologic technology at a program accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JCERT), and passing the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) National Registry Examination. In addition to developing technical skills needed to function as a radiographer, individuals will complete a series of liberal arts courses in order to develop skills necessary to serve as an essential member of the health care team. Such skills focus on communication, human diversity, technology, living a healthy lifestyle, and critical thinking and judgment. 

Students must be concurrently enrolled in, or have successfully completed a JCERT accredited hospital-based radiography certificate program and have maintained current licensure. Admission to the certificate program is selective and requires application directly to the accredited hospital-based program. College courses listed in the first and fourth semesters will be scheduled for the fall; second and fifth semester courses will be scheduled for the spring; third and sixth semester courses will be scheduled for the summer.
