Radiation technologists are healthcare professionals who specialize in the imaging of human anatomy for the diagnosis and treatment of pathology. If you've ever broken a bone, you've probably met a radiologic technologist (radiographer). Radiologic technologists need to be efficient at taking diagnostic images, but it's just as important that they're caring and compassionate professionals who can put nervous patients at ease.
- One program, two degrees: As a radiologic technology major, you'll earn two degrees a Bachelor of Science from Briar Cliff, in addition to an Associate of Science degree in radiology from a certified partner program such as St. Luke's College in Sioux City or St. Cloud Hospital in St. Cloud, MN, which are both accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology.
- Practical Hands-On Experience: More than just concepts and theories, we believe in the power of experiential learning. With that, we have created a practical program that will provide every student countless hands-on lab experiences.
- Flexibility: If you have already completed a two-year radiologic technology program, and attained a passing grade on the American Registry Exam, you can enroll at BCU and get your Bachelor of Science degree in just two years.
Once you pass our cooperative program, you'll be qualified and prepared to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists Exam, which you must pass to become a certified radiologic technologist.
