  • PROGRAM INFORMATION
      • The HCCC 63-credit, Associate of Science in Radiography degree program includes 33 credits of general education and science studies that may be taken at the College’s Journal Square or North Hudson campus.
      • The remaining 30 credits of specialized radiography and clinical competency courses provide instruction in preparing and positioning patients for radiologic exams, taking x-rays, and providing thoughtful, competent care to all patients. The coursework also prepares students to successfully demonstrate competency in the more than 50 radiological patient examinations required by the State of New Jersey Bureau of Radiological Health. Students completing the course will receive their associate degrees in science and a certificate in radiography that allows them to sit for the national American Registry of Radiologic Technologists exam.
      • A career in radiologic technology can lead in many directions. Radiologic technologists are needed in every health care setting. You could work in a large hospital, a suburban outpatient clinic or a rural physician's office. You could specialize in dozens of clinical areas ranging from prenatal care to orthopedics. You could manage an entire radiology department, including its budget and personnel. You could teach, inspiring new generations of radiologic technologists, or you could perform research that leads to breakthroughs in diagnostic imaging or radiation therapy. With additional education, you could become a radiologist assistant, expanding your capabilities by serving as a radiologist extender. The boundaries of your career in radiologic technology are determined only by your own abilities and interests.
      • Whether you consider yourself technically adept or not, you will be comfortable studying radiologic technology. That's because the field is part science, part art. During your educational program, you will study subjects such as anatomy, biology, radiation safety and physics. You'll learn to use computers to acquire and manipulate images. And you'll work with some of the most technologically advanced equipment in the medical field.
      • But you'll also learn to communicate with patients, to solve problems and to work with other members of the health care team, including doctors, nurses and experienced radiologic technologists. During this clinical experience, you'll have a hands-on opportunity to practice your patient care skills and fine-tune your technical knowledge. You will develop skills that allow you to provide care that is accurate as well as compassionate.
