Associate in Science
This is a Limited Access program.
The mission for the Associate in Science in Radiologic Technology program is to educate, train and clinically prepare students to produce diagnostic medical radiographic images. The program is a balance between theory and practice that enhances the educational experience and provides students with the skills and preparation necessary for employment in the field of radiography.
This program is designed for individuals who wish to become certified in radiography. Graduates of the program are eligible to sit for the ARRT examination and work as entry-level radiographers. You are strongly advised to complete as many of the general education courses as possible before applying to the program. A brochure outlining costs, requirements, deadlines, and procedures is available at fscj.edu/2154 or from the radiography/allied health department on North Campus.
A minimum grade of "C" must be achieved in all professional coursework in order to continue in the program.
Radiographers, under the supervision of a radiologist, play an important role in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and trauma. Radiographers perform x-ray examinations of systems of the body, including the skeletal, respiratory, circulatory, nervous, and digestive systems. Graduates of the Florida State College at Jacksonville Radiography program are eligible to take the nationally recognized American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) examination immediately after graduation. This credential offers the radiographer excellent employment opportunities as well as a competitive salary. For more information, visit the ARRT website at arrt.org.
