Radiology Degrees

A radiology degree prepares graduates to work in the exciting field of radiology, which is the study of imaging the human body to diagnose and treat disease. The technology used in radiology includes x-ray, ultrasound, CT, PET, and MRI.

Radiologic and MRI technologists work in hospitals, clinics, urgent care centers, and other healthcare facilities. They specifically manage the x-ray or imaging process, which includes prepping the patient, operating the equipment, and helping with interpreting the results. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that radiology jobs are expected to grow faster than average and that those with knowledge of more than one diagnostic tool will have an advantage in securing employment. The BLS writes that the typical radiologic and MRI technologists earns approximately $54,620 per year.

For those students or working professionals who are interested in a career in radiology, several degree options are worth exploring. Depending on the experience, job sought, and credentials, future radiologists can enter certificate, associates, or bachelor’s programs. An associate’s degree in radiology includes courses in anatomy and physiology, patient care procedures, radiation physics, radiation protection, principles of imaging, medical terminology, positioning of patients, medical ethics, radiobiology, and pathology.
