Description

The Salem Campus provides a Bachelor of Radiologic and Imaging Sciences Technology, designed for students pursuing studies related to medical imaging. Five concentrations are offered: computed tomography (CT), diagnostic medical sonography (DMS), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medicine (NM) and radiation therapy (RTH). The options to pursue this major are the following:

  • Option I: Completion of the Associate of Applied Science in Radiologic Technology prior to acceptance into the major. Available in the following concentrations: CT, DMS, MRI, NM or RTH.
  • Option II: Completion of an Associate of Science degree or completion of electives (freshman entry) prior to acceptance into the major. Available in the following concentrations: DMS, NM or RTH. No previous radiologic technology program is required prior to acceptance into this option.
  • Option III: Graduation from a hospital-based certificate program in radiologic technology (32 semester credits will be awarded), successful completion of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologist (ARRT) certification exam and completion of the Associate of Technical Studies in Radiologic Technology prior to acceptance into the major. Available in the following concentrations: CT, DMS, MRI, NM or RTH.
Career Opportunities

Radiologic technologists held about 216,000 jobs in 2010. More than 60 percent of all jobs were in hospitals. Most other jobs were in offices of physicians; including diagnostic imaging centers; and outpatient care centers.

Admission Requirements

Admission to the program is on a selective basis due to the limited number of students approved for each clinical education setting. The application deadlines are April 1 for DMS, NM and RTH and July 1 for CT and MRI. Program applicants are encouraged to meet with an advisor at the Salem campus to discuss the minimum admission requirements. Detailed information and requirements for admission, satisfactory progress and graduation are in the student handbook for this program. A copy of the handbook may be obtained from the program directors.
 

Graduation Requirements

To receive a Bachelor of Radiologic and Imaging Sciences Technology, students must meet the minimum 121 credit hours. Students must satisfy the 37-hour minimum requirements stipulated in the Kent Core and diversity requirement as indicated in this Catalog. Students must complete a minimum 39 upper-division (junior- and senior-level) courses. The cumulative grade point average must be minimum 2.000 for all coursework taken at Kent State University. Students must complete all radiologic and imaging sciences courses as noted in program requirements, with a C or 2.000 GPA or higher. Students must have minimum 2.750 GPA in the radiologic and imaging sciences technology core courses. Only general elective courses may be taken pass/fail. Students must complete all academic and clinical competencies in their core concentration.
