Radiological Technology Associate of Applied Science

Program Description

The Radiologic Technology program is designed to prepare individuals for a career as a Registered Radiologic Technologist. A radiologic technologist (radiographer) is a person educated in the “art and science” of creating images of the human body. The radiographer works closely with the radiologist (a physician, specializing in the official interpretation of radiographs) and other physicians, and plays a vital role as a professional member of the total health care team. The program provides students with the most current know ledge and skills necessary to work in hospitals’ general radiography department, surgery, trauma, pediatrics, clinics, doctors’ offices, CT, and many more places. The Associate of Applied Science (AAS) program is a two-year program that is patient care related. Students who successfully complete the program will be eligible to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologist (ARRT) national examination.

The Radiologic Technology program is offered on the Main Campus.
