Radiologic Technology

Associate of Applied Science (AAS) - 78 credits
Delivery Method: On-Campus


The Radiologic Technology program provides a full learning experience. You’ll get both classroom training at the Duluth campus and clinical training at regional sites. The first eight weeks of the program you will be on campus only two days a week. Once those first 8 weeks of the program are completed successfully, you will begin your clinical experience four days a week and one day a week on campus for classroom instruction. During the program you’ll learn physics, anatomy and physiology. You’ll also learn current imaging technology, and basic patient care. The clinical piece of the program is crucial. It offers the opportunity for hands-on learning in a real medical setting. Lake Superior College has clinical sites located in Duluth, with outreach sites throughout the region.

Is Health Science right for you?

Health science workers promote health and wellness. They diagnose and treat injuries and disease. As a physician, dentist, or nurse, you could work directly with patients. You could also work in a laboratory to get information used in research or provide administrative support by keeping medical records.
