The mission of the Radiologic Technology Program at University of Charleston-Beckley is to prepare graduates for productive work in radiographic imaging, a life-long commitment to professional and intellectual growth, and service to their profession and community as an involved citizen.
The radiologic technology program offers you the opportunity to become part of a fast growing profession. You will not only develop technical expertise, but also additional skills, including effective communication, critical thinking, clinical competence and professionalism. Upon meeting program completion requirements, you will be eligible to apply for the American Registry of Radiologic Technology (AART) examination.
The curriculum includes 20 hours of general studies and 48 hours of radiologic technology. It incorporates both didactic and clinical education components. You will be able to practice most radiographic procedures on campus in our lab (similar to that found in hospital settings), and take part in direct patient contact during the clinical components of the program.
