    Program Description

    Focus on the creative career opportunities in the scientific field of radiology. Our Radiologic Technology program allows you to combine basic scientific principals with the creativity of art by taking radiographic images to aid with diagnosis of illness and injuries.

    You can choose to take our program via the Lincoln track or the Distance track. If you take the Lincoln track, you will perform your clinical in Lincoln with courses offered in person; if you take the Distance track you will perform your clinical at a pre-approved hospital outside Lincoln and take your courses online. Once you complete the program you will have the skills necessary to be successful and prepared to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologist Exam and apply for state licensure where you choose to work.

    As the baby-boom population grows older, there may be an increase in medical conditions which require imaging as a tool for making diagnoses. Radiologic technologists will be needed to take these images. You will be a successful radiologic technologist if you:

    • are interested in a hands-on career in the medical field
    • enjoy working with people from all walks of life
    • have good interpersonal and communication skills
    • like to see immediate results of your work
    • like science, anatomy and math
    • want an occupation with advancement opportunities

    As a radiologic technologist, you will work with patients performing radiology exams including MRIs, X-rays, and CAT scans. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for radiologic technologists is projected to grow 12 percent by 2026. Recent SCC graduates report an average annual starting salary of $35,700. You can be a radiologic technologist in one of these settings:

    • Hospitals
    • Clinics
    • Outpatient Imaging Centers
    • Doctor’s Officess
