Bachelor of Science Degree
Radiologic Technology offers exciting educational and career opportunities for students wishing to combine an interest in the sciences with diagnostic imaging. As vital members of the health care team, radiologic technologists perform diagnostic imaging tests used to prevent, diagnose, and treat disease. The practice of modern medicine would not be possible without diagnostic imaging.
Radiologic Technologists have diverse career opportunities in hospital, clinic, university, and government laboratories. They can pursue advanced imaging such as MRI and CT certifications. Graduates are qualified to enter graduate programs leading to master's and doctoral degrees. Radiologic technology is a very good choice of undergraduate major for those interested in professional school because it provides an excellent foundation in diagnostic medicine.
Classroom learning is reinforced in most courses through practical laboratory experiences. Before admission to the radiologic technology training program at Central's affiliated hospitals, a student must first earn a minimum of 66 semester hours of college credit. After a satisfactory completion of the training program, students are awarded a degree and are eligible and expected to take the national certification examination.
