The Radiologic Science Associate Degree is an entry-level program providing students with an opportunity to develop the knowledge and skills required to become a member of the healthcare team. It combines state-of-the-art technology and imaging techniques with human compassion to provide a rewarding career.
Why study Radiologic Science at Coastal Georgia?
Students can earn their degree and seek employment after five semesters. Low student-to-faculty ratio allows students the support needed to succeed, and faculty who use multiple technologies to deliver content, accommodating different learning styles.
What will I learn?
Utilizing ionizing radiation, radiologic technologists produce diagnostic images used for the diagnosis and treatment of disease and injury. Students will also learn to respond ethically to the needs of the patient with technical competence and compassion.
What can I do when I graduate?
Employment of radiologic technologists is projected to grow nine percent from 2014 to 2024 - faster than the average for all occupations. As the population grows older, there will be an increase in medical conditions that require imaging as a tool for making a diagnosis. Radiography is also utilized in industry (non-destructive imaging) to assess the quality of metals (welds, wires, cracks) and even to ensure the quality of tires.
