• Radiologic Technologist (558)
    Associate of Science


    This program provides training in the field of radiologic technology (X-ray). Radiologic technologists work in hospital, clinic or health center radiology departments. Students learn to produce images of body parts as an aid in the diagnosis of disease and injury.

    Upon successful completion of the program, the graduate will:

    1. Function as a competent, technically proficient entry-level technologist who can apply and perform safe patient care radiation protection practices according to industry standards. 
    2. Utilize safe methods to provide patients with minimized radiation dose levels during imaging procedures. 
    3. Operate diagnostic imaging X-ray units to meet 
    4. standardized protocols under the direction of radiologists. 
    5. Manipulate equipment functions to produce quality radiographic images. 
    6. Exhibit professional characteristics required by the radiologic technology profession.

    Enrollment is limited by the availability of clinical sites and other factors. Students must make separate application to the program and applicants should have a successful record of achievement in high school algebra and science courses, including physics, or develop these skills prior to program admission. Students must also meet pre-program requirements, which include the successful completion of BIO-151 General Biology or BIO-110 Introduction to Biological Science.

    Graduates of this program are eligible to take the Radiologic Technologist Radiography (RTR)(R) certification examination provided by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologist (ARRT) required for employment in this field.

    This program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT), 20 North Wacker Drive, Suite 2850, Chicago, IL 60606-3182; 312.704.5300, www.jrcert.org.
