Health Science with Concentration in Radiography

Bachelor of Science in Health Science with Concentration in Radiography

Overview of Programs

The Bachelor of Science in Health Science program with concentration options prepare students to assume leadership roles in the field of Imaging Sciences. The ASRT recognizes the baccalaureate degree as the professional level of radiologic science education. Typically, a bachelor's degree is required for entry-level management positions at the departmental level within healthcare organizations or faculty positions in associate degree programs. Imaging department managers are often responsible for multi-million dollar facilities and equipment and a significant number of employees. Imaging Science educators are responsible for administering educational programs, developing operational budgets, instruction, and maintaining program integrity and accreditation. To make effective decisions, leaders in imaging need to be open to different opinions, analyze contradictory information, understand finance and information systems, and interpret data. Motivating others to implement their decisions requires strong leadership abilities. Tact, diplomacy, flexibility, and communication skills are also essential. The degree programs facilitate matriculation of diploma or associate degree imaging professionals to the bachelor's level.
