Bachelor of Science
Radiologic Technology Major (92)
Radiologic Technologists are important members of the health team. They perform a wide variety of diagnostic and therapeutic radiologic procedures.
The Bachelor of Science degree in radiologic technology requires a prescribed curriculum at SCSU and clinical course work at an affiliated school of radiologic technology. During the first two years students take liberal education and science courses at SCSU. The science requirements are described below. The clinical radiologic courses are taken during the last two years. This is called the clinical phase and the courses in it prepare students to take the national certification examination in radiologic technology as well as fulfill the graduation requirements for the BS degree in Radiologic Technology from SCSU. Admission to the major does not guarantee automatic acceptance into the clinical phase. The clinical phase, which is a clinical internship, is required for the major.
For a current list of affiliated schools of radiologic technology, please see http://www.stcloudstate.edu/healthsciences/radtech. Students must apply for the clinical phase early in their second year. Acceptance is competitive and is based on criteria which is established by the hospital affiliates and is available to students in the SCSU Radiologic Technology director's office. All courses except for RADT 375, RADT 475, PHYS 354, PHYS 454, and PHYS 309 must be completed prior to beginning the clinical phase.
Liberal Education/University Requirement: 40 credits
Pre-Clinical Core: 29 credits
BIOL 202, 204, 266, CHEM 210, 211, PHYS 231, 232
MATH 112 (or higher level algebra or calculus course)
Note: MATH 193 is not acceptable
Clinical Education: 56 credits
RADT 375 (14 credits), RADT 475 (14 credits)
PHYS 354 (14 credits), PHYS 454 (14 credits)
Professional Core: 7 credits
PHYS 308, 309, 408
Because of required coursework in mathematics and science, students graduating with a major in Radiologic Technology are considered as having satisfied 9 credits of the liberal education requirement in mathematics and natural/physical science.
The Upper Division Writing Requirement for the Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Technology is fulfilled by successfully completing an approved writing project in PHYS 309 with a grade in that course of C- or better.
