Radiographic Science (B.A.)
About the Program
The Bachelor of Arts/Science in Radiographic Science degree is a four-year program of study. The first year of pre-professional courses includes General Education Core and support courses. Professional courses include study and practice in clinical application of radiographic procedures for the purposes of imaging all parts of the human body for medical diagnosis. Practice will be in community hospitals and clinics. Upon completion of the Associate of Science in Radiographic Science degree and passing the certification examination administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT), graduates complete an additional 22 upper division credits to earn a B.S. in Radiographic Science.
