Northeast offers a focused education complete with extensive classroom learning, hands-on lab time, and clinical practice so you’ll earn your AAS, be prepared to pass licensure exams, and get ready to start your successful career as a radiologic technologist in under two years.

Radiologic technologists are specialists in medical imaging, using X-rays to provide doctors with important diagnostic information. The demand for radiologic technologists continues to grow, with the number of jobs increasing more than 6% in the next decade1. Northeast’s AAS in radiologic technology program will prepare you to work as a radiographer in less than two years, with the opportunity to cross-train in advanced imaging modalities, including CT, MRI, cardiac catheterization, interventional radiography and mammography. Whether your dream is working in the operating room, the emergency room, the patient room or the locker room, Northeast will get you there.
