Radiographers are essential members of the health care team. Their knowledge of radiation protection, physics and biology, as well as technical procedures, allows them to deliver the safest and highest quality patient care through the use of multiple imaging modalities. In the evolving world of medicine, high technology imaging has become multifaceted, both in modalities and operationally.  

To prepare students for careers in radiography, Quinnipiac University's Department of Diagnostic Imaging offers a BS in Radiologic Sciences. The program offers didactic, laboratory and clinical training in diverse aspects of radiography including patient care, radiation safety, image production and procedures for the student who is motivated to become a member of the imaging profession. Students complete the program in a three-year accelerated format.

The first year of the bachelor’s degree program consists of University Curriculum studies. The component of the program accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology begins in the second year of study. During the second and third years, the students concentrate on didactic radiography classes and laboratory sessions on campus and clinical education at multiple clinical education centers. The curriculum is structured so students can apply the knowledge and skills developed in the classroom and laboratory to the care of patients in the clinical setting. Beginning in the spring semester of the sophomore year and continuing throughout the program, didactic and clinical courses are taken simultaneously to provide the opportunity for immediate application and reinforcement.

At the end of the third year, students are eligible for graduation with a bachelor’s degree in Radiologic Sciences, and are board-eligible for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) certification examination. Students would be eligible to apply for one of two advanced studies options here at Quinnipiac University. Options within the Diagnostic Imaging Department include the two-year MHS Radiologist Assistant program and the one-year MHS Advanced Medical Imaging and Leadership program.
