The Chesapeake College Radiologic Sciences Degree prepares students to deliver quality radiologic services and patient care.
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: The Radiologic Sciences degree provides educational and clinical experiences necessary for graduates to perform as entry-level radiographers and a foundation for future professional development. Graduates granted an Associate of Applied Science degree, upon completion of the program requirements, will be eligible to sit for the certifying examination in radiography given by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).
The Radiologic Sciences program is an intensive, full-time program, including summer sessions. The program includes a general education core, professional radiography content, and clinical practice at local health care facilities. Program enrollment is limited by the number of clinical placements. In addition to the scholastic standards required of all students, radiologic science students must earn a grade of "C" or better in science, math, and radiography courses in order to continue in and graduate from the program. Graduates are eligible to write the certifying examination given by the ARRT which is required to apply for a Maryland license as a radiographer. Students should consult with the College’s Admissions Office or the Nursing and Allied Health Advisor in planning an appropriate program.
