CURRICULUM GUIDE

 

Radiologic Technology

Associate in Applied Science Degree

 

Curriculum Code: 0196  (Effective Fall 2004 - Summer 2006)

 

Radiologic technologists, also called radiographers, operate X-ray equipment under the direction of a physician, taking radiographs of internal parts of the body.  Most often radiologic technologists are employed in hospitals, clinics and physician offices.  Graduates of the program will be eligible for examination by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).  Not all courses in this program transfer to all colleges.  Students planning to transfer should see an academic advisor or counselor before enrolling in any course. This program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology.

 

This is a selective admission program.  In order to be considered as a candidate for this program, students must meet basic admission requirements beyond those required for admission to the college.  Many of the courses for this program are open only to students officially admitted to the Radiologic Technology Program.

 

PREREQUISITES
Students should see Course Descriptions or Course Offerings for course prerequisite information.  See the Assessment and Placement Testing section for skills assessment and advising information.
