Pre-Radiologic Technology

Program Description

The Pre-Radiologic Technology program at BSC provides the first two years of core classes toward a baccalaureate degree for students planning a career in radiologic technology. Students study human biology, anatomy and physiology, introductory chemistry and microbiology, college physics, and algebra and trigonometry. Other courses include introductory computer and psychology classes and general education classes required for graduation.


High school students planning careers in radiologic technology should study the sciences and mathematics.

Program Requirements

Those completing the suggested curriculum requirements receive an Associate in Science degree.

In North Dakota, bachelor’s degree programs in radiologic technology are available at University of Jamestown, Minot State University, North Dakota State University, and University of Mary. Those transferring to other institutions should consult the catalog of the transfer school and modify BSC’s suggested curriculum where necessary.

Contact your BSC advisor for assistance with transfer planning.

Career Opportunities

A Bachelor of Science in radiologic technology may be earned by first completing the science, math, business and general education requirements of the college or university and then entering a clinical program at a school of radiologic technology. After completion of the clinical program, the graduate can become certified by passing the Radiologic Radiographers Registry Examination.

Most radiographers or radiologic technologists work in hospitals, physician offices and clinics including diagnostic imaging centers.

Any student considering completion of the 4-year program at the University of Mary MUST talk with an advisor before registering for the spring freshman courses.

It is essential that students check the catalog of the transfer university of their choice and bring this information to their advisor so the curriculum can be modified according to the specific requirements of the degree granting institution. The suggested curriculum will help prepare students for acceptance to their transfer university of choice.
