Radiologic Technology - Hybrid

Award: Associate of Applied Science Degree
Length: Four semesters and Two summer terms
Spring semester entry only

Radiologic Technology is a great career choice for someone interested in the healthcare field. This two-year comprehensive program consists of radiologic courses, clinical experience, and general studies. The courses are taught through a mixture of online and on campus class time, and clinical experience is obtained at various approved clinical sites.

Radiologic technologists, also known as radiographers, produce x-ray films of parts of the human body for use in diagnosing medical problems. With the ever-changing technology in the health care arena, radiologic technicians are becoming more involved with computerized tomography scanners (CT), which produce cross sectional views and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which utilizes giant magnets and radio waves rather than radiation to create a diagnostic image, as well as other specialized fields that can draw a new graduate of the Radiologic Technology program.

National, state, and local data indicates that there will be a continued need for Radiologic Technologists through the next decade.

The Radiologic Technology program requires an additional acceptance process. Additional information regarding the admission process can be found through the admissions office.

Where will I get a job?
Employment opportunities exist in various settings, such as hospitals, healthcare facilities, physician offices, mobile imaging companies, industrial plants, research centers, government agencies, commercial sales, and education. Training in this profession allows individuals to specialize in their area of choice or pursue careers as researchers, consultants, or administrators.

How much $ will I make?
Average starting salary is around $16–$23/hour.

What kind of classes will I take?
Some classes will have a hybrid component where you will need to be on campus at various times during the year. The clinical experience allows you to work alongside a registered technologist at a healthcare facility.

What’s unique about this program?
The hybrid program allows for the opportunity to complete assignments and clinical rotations at their convenience. There is a high demand for radiographers. This program is beginning in the Spring of 2017.
