Options for College Students

2-Year Dual-Concentration Bachelor's

Program Length

2 years (24 consecutive months, full-time)

About the Program

The Bureau of Labor Statistics says that radiologic technologists who are trained in multiple credentials have better job prospects than those with just one area of expertise. In our 2-Year Dual-Concentration Bachelor's Program, you study two imaging concentrations in 24 months.

The Dual-Concentration Program is for students with no education in the radiologic sciences or a health discipline to earn a BS in Radiologic Sciences while acquiring training in a combination of concentrations. Students must consult an admissions counselor or a Radiologic Sciences faculty member when choosing concentrations. We cannot guarantee acceptance to your second-year concentration of choice.
