ASSOCIATE OF SCIENCE DEGREE
The Radiologic Technology Program was established in 1993. The program prepares graduates to perform radiologic procedures as entry level radiologic technology practitioners. The radiologic technologist assists radiologists and other physicians in imaging parts of the body through the use of ionizing radiation and other forms of energy, specialized radiographic equipment and manipulating patient positions.
The Radiologic Technology Program at Franciscan University provides students the opportunity to learn the art and science of medical imaging.
