Radiologic Technology

Program Type: Major
Program Level: Undergraduate
Department: Natural Sciences

radiologic technologists make a difference - and are in high demand.

Radiologic technologists perform diagnostic imaging and use radiation for medical diagnosis and treatment. Physicians and radiologists will rely on you, and you'll make an incredible impact on the patients you come across. 

Get started with a bachelor's degree from Mount Marty University.

Radiology is one of the fastest-growing fields in health care today. With a bachelor’s degree in radiologic technology, you’ll be able to perform radiology procedures to assist in the detection, diagnosis and treatment of injury and disease. Your title may be radiologic technologist. You may also be called an x-ray technician or radiographer, depending on the facility or your specialization. Regardless of title, you’ll be playing a crucial role in helping physicians—and caring for patients.

  • x-ray
  • mammography
  • ultrasound
  • CT scan
  • magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)


There are lots of options and levels of education to choose from in radiologic technology, ranging from certificate programs to master’s degrees. With a two-year associate’s degree, you can take x-rays. With our bachelor’s degree, you’ll be able to supervise that person or even an entire hospital department. The more education you have, the better your chances are of employment and advancement in your career.

We offer a cooperative program to earn your bachelor’s degree in radiology technology. You’ll take two years of core science courses at Mount Marty University. You’ll then have two years of hands-on clinical experience at a school of radiology that is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).

Mount Marty's clinic program enables students to access exemplary heath systems, including the following:

  • Avera McKennan Hospital
  • Avera Sacred Heart Hospital
  • Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences
  • Minnesota West Community and Technical College
  • Sanford Health USD Medical Center
  • Minneapolis VA Healthcare System
  • Bachelor’s and associate’s degrees. After you graduate from an accredited school of radiology, you’ll earn your bachelor’s degree from us at no extra cost. And you’ll pick up an associate’s degree or certificate from the school of radiology along the way.
  • Job shadowing. In our program, you’ll also have the chance for job shadowing at Avera Sacred Heart Hospital, Yankton Medical Clinic or other hospitals and medical clinics under the supervision of a certified radiographer.
  • Strong science foundation. During your first two years, you’ll take core courses that apply directly to your career as a radiologic technologist. You’ll take courses in chemistry, human anatomy and physiology, biology, and physics.
