Program Overview


The mission of the Radiologic Technology Program is to prepare entry level radiographers with the knowledge and skills to competently and safely perform diagnostic radiologic imaging procedures fulfilling the needs of the medical community in the service area.

As a radiographer, you are responsible for imaging the human body which allows physicians to provide diagnosis and treatment to the patient. Radiographers work in various clinical settings including, but not limited to, hospitals, orthopedic clinics, and surgery departments.

Graduates of the Southern Union State Community College Radiologic Technology Program are able to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists National Registry Exam. After students have successfully completed the ARRT exam, individuals are considered registered Radiologic Technologists. Click here to learn more about the radiography program.

Southern Union also offers 2 online certificate programs, Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Each program is 26 credit hours in length and is designed to accommodate working, professional students who have already completed a radiologic technology program.
