Health Sciences - Radiologic Technology Concentration, B.S.

In the Radiologic Technology concentration, students prepare for a career in the field of diagnostic imaging. This specific advanced education degree meets the need for sophisticated imaging management and leadership that can respond to clinical, organizational and fiscal demands facing the healthcare industry today. Students complete two years preparatory and general core course work earning placement into the concentration and clinical years in their third year.

Acceptance into RADT coursework takes place during the spring semester of a student's second year. Acceptance is limited with chances of acceptance increased by completing pre-requisite courses at MCLA and by earning grades higher than the minimum in these courses. Requirements include an overall GPA > 2.85; grades of C+ or higher in BIOL 150, BIOL 342, BIOL 343; HLTH 110 and HLTH 105; and minimum grades of C in MATH 150 or C+ in College Algebra. Additional details are provided at mcla.edu/academics/academic-departments/health-sciences/radiologic-tech.

Please note that students are required to attend at least one summer session after acceptance into the RADT coursework to complete this degree. During this session, students are required to attend clinical sessions a minimum of 40 hours per week for a period of 11 weeks. Students are encouraged not to engage in activities which carry a significant time commitment during this session.
