B.S. in Radiology Technology
The Bachelor of Science degree in radiologic technology is an advanced standing program designed for the professional development of registered radiological technologists. The program’s objectives are to provide educational opportunities for radiographers who have graduated from accredited programs with certificates and are certified to practice and to provide career mobility and educational articulation for these students.
Registered radiological technologists who are graduates from an accredited two-year, hospital-based program may receive up to 54 transfer credits toward the Bachelor of Science degree, depending on the evaluation of the hospital training transcript. Additional transfer credits may be granted for courses taken at accredited collegiate institutions. Associate degree applicants may receive up to 60 transfer credits.
The program is offered on a part-time or full-time basis. Graduates of FDU’s Associate in Science degree in Radiography who take 12 to 15 credits per year may complete the program in four years. Radiographers with certificates or associate degrees who carry 12 to 17 credits per year can complete the curriculum in five years. The curriculum is interdisciplinary in structure with courses in the liberal arts and sciences.
Students will be evaluated for admission based on satisfactory Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or American College Testing (ACT) scores, transcripts from all prior institutions, a minimum cumulative grade point ratio (CGPR) of 2.50, two letters of recommendation that attest to the candidate’s character and ability to succeed academically and proof of licence/certification as a Radiographer.
