Bachelor of Science in Advanced Medical Imaging

A Four-Year Degree That Advances Your Radiography CareerCT Scanner

Most radiography programs terminate at the associate or certificate level.  At Saint Catharine College you can advance your associate degree or certificate of Radiography to obtain a meaningful career in advanced medical imaging.  The program curriculum is comprehensive in nature and is dedicated to the education of those individuals committed to superior patient care, life-long learning, and procedural and professional competence.  This degree is especially designed to offer a leadership position while preparing the student to pursue their choice of specialty, computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

The professional curriculum is a total of 19 credit hours that can realistically be completed in two semesters.  Some students choose to take both concentrations which would add 1 more semester, but gain the ability to apply for both (CT and MRI) of the examinations offered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).  Each student will be evaluated on classroom and practicum experiences, but must continue to obtain the necessary examinations required by the ARRT.  The program is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).
