The radiographer is a technologist who produces images of the human body to aid physicians in the diagnosis of injuries and diseases. Grades of the program are eligible to take the entry-level certification examination administered by the American Registry of Radiography Technologists (AART) and may obtain employment in x-ray departments associated with hospitals, medical clinics, veterinary clinics, and private offices.

Program curriculum focuses on theoretical and applied radiography and includes a clinical experience in a radiographic department. The program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT). Students learn to use x-ray imaging machines to demonstrate body parts on x-ray films for diagnostic purposes, including diagnostic radiology, bedside and trauma procedures, pediatric radiography, and special procedures.
