Bachelor in Radiography

Top 6 Bachelor Degrees in Radiography 2018

Instead of going straight into the workforce following high school graduation, many students decide to continue their education and earn a bachelor’s degree. Working professionals often earn this type of degree as well, and most programs take about fours years to complete.

What is a Bachelor in Radiography? While earning this degree, students may take courses that cover business-related skills in addition to learning practical X-ray techniques in a medical setting. For instance, students may take human anatomy, radiographic exposure and procedure, advanced patient care techniques, and radiation biology classes. They may also take classes that cover ethical medical imaging and healthcare and computer systems.

One of the main skills students can learn while earning a Bachelor in Radiography is how to take effective, efficient X-ray images, which can help graduates secure a job as a radiographer. Students may also refine their management skills and knowledge of the healthcare system, which can help them navigate this career field successfully.

The length of time it completes to finish this bachelor’s degree, whether a student takes classes in person or online, and how much the school attended charges for tuition can all affect how much it costs to earn this degree. What a student spends on materials, books, transportation, and housing can also impact the overall cost.

Most students who graduate with a Bachelor in Radiography typically go on to become a licensed radiographer. These professionals are responsible for using X-ray equipment for diagnostic purposes both in healthcare centers and in hospitals. Those who move into this medical career can work in a variety of settings as well, such as in hospitals, private physician offices, and medical laboratories. Some also work in assisted living and senior care facilities, like nursing homes.

Students may be able to earn this degree through a combination of online and in-person classes. For further information about available options, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
