The Radiologic Science Program at Penn State Schuylkill is a cooperative effort between Penn State Schuylkill,  Schuylkill Medical Center, The Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center,  The Good Samaritan Hospital (Lebanon), St. Joseph Medical Center (Reading) and Schuylkill Otolaryngology Associates, Inc.

The radiologic science major meets the educational and clinical requirements for the graduate to function as an entry level radiographer.  Required coursework is divided intro three interrelated areas including general education, radiography specific, and clinical education components.  During the clinical component, students perform radiographic exams under the directed supervision of certified radiographers at multiple area clinical education settings.  The clinical component emphasizes the concepts of team practice and patient centered care.  Both the radiography specific course work and the clinical component are structured sequentially over seven consecutive semesters, commencing each fall semester.  Upon successful completion of the 72 credit associate degree, the graduate will be eligible to complete the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) examination for certification.

For the Associate degree in Radiological Sciences, a minimum of 72 credits is required.
