School of Radiography
Radiographers are educated and licensed to produce X-ray images (radiographs) of the human body (tissues, organ, bones and vessels) for use in diagnosing medical problems.
The School of Radiography was established in 1964 as a hospital-based program to meet the demand for graduate radiographers. In 1982 an affiliation with Union County College was established, expanding the program's educational horizons. The School of Radiography clinically affiliates with various hospitals, medical centers, freestanding facilities and offices throughout the state.
The School of Radiography's favorable student-to-faculty ratio, strong emphasis on clinical competency and state-of-the-art equipment assures students a high quality clinical experience.
