Degree Plan +



Degree Plan +

As a St. Kate’s radiography student, you’ll learn about anatomy and physiology and human disease along with radiographic sciences. Through rigorous classroom instruction and hands-on clinical experiences, you’ll gain a thorough understanding of radiographic procedures and patient care.

Our focus on liberal arts education means you’ll also learn the communication and critical-thinking skills you need to work effectively in healthcare teams, preparing you to become a leader in the field.

Graduate ready to specialize

After graduating and passing the national certification exam offered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists, you’ll be prepared to work as a fully qualified radiography professional. Then you may then choose to specialize in Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resource Imaging (MRI), vascular procedures, interventional radiography and more.

You will also have an excellent foundation to continue your education in specialties like radiation therapy and nuclear medicine.
