Associate of Applied Science Radiologic Technology | Kent State University

Associate of Applied Science Radiologic Technology

Thank you for your interest in the Radiologic Technology Program at the Salem Campus of Kent State University.

This is an associate degree program that teaches students how to perform medical imaging procedures. Medical imaging is a branch of health care delivery that utilizes x-rays and other energy forms to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions.

Through a blend of classroom education at the university and clinical education at a hospital, students learn radiographic equipment operation, patient positioning and procedures, radiation safety and methods of patient care.

The Associate of Applied Science degree in Radiologic Technology requires 71 semester hours of coursework for the degree to be granted. It prepares graduates to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists Certification Exam in order to become registered radiologic technologists.

Graduates may also choose to gain additional education in other areas of medical imaging to become multi-skilled practitioners. The Salem Campus also offers a Bachelor of Radiologic and Imaging Sciences Technology degree in Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Diagnostic Medical Sonography (DMS), and Radiation Therapy (RTH).
