PCC’s bachelor’s degree completion program in Radiologic Technology is designed to provide education in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) as well as leadership and education in medical imaging. Many employers are seeking graduates with a bachelor’s degree and at least one additional imaging modality; this program helps you prepare for these requirements. The program is mostly online with face-to-face clinical education for MRI and CT. Graduates will be prepared to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) post-primary certification in either MRI or CT.
For this program, you will need access to a computer with broadband internet that can stream video and audio. Your course may also require hardware such as a headset with microphone. Technical support is available for all courses.
