Bachelor of Science — Program Overview
If you wish to become a radiologic technologist, this major will start you off with a broad, liberal arts background to prepare you for professional training at an accredited school of radiologic technology. Take two years of coursework at BCU and two years of clinical work at a radiologic technology institution (including St. Luke's right here in Sioux City) — and you'll have a bachelor of science degree in addition to an associate of science degree in radiology.
You'll also be prepared and eligible for the American Registry or Radiologic Technologists Examination.
Start off with foundational coursework to support application to the clinical portion of the program. If accepted into the clinical portion of the program, two clinical years follow at an accredited school or radiologic technology, after which the second year of coursework on the Briar Cliff University campus is performed. The two clinical years are credited as two years of academic work at Briar Cliff (62 semester hours). If application to the clinical portion of the program is unsuccessful during the first year, you'll take a second year of coursework at BCU and re-apply to accredited schools of radiologic technology.
You may also complete this program if you have already completed a two-year radiologic technology program and attained a passing grade on the American Registry Examination.
ST. LUKE'S PARTNERSHIP
