Radiologic Technology

Students in this major will learn how to perform imaging procedures using ionizing radiation. They will learn appropriate patient care skills as well as radiation protection procedures for their patients, themselves, and others. They will learn to operate a variety of imaging equipment, factors that affect image quality, and criteria for image evaluation. Extensive clinical assignments are included. Upon completion, graduates will satisfy the educational requirements to take the Radiography certification exam provided by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).
