    This online administration program prepares radiologic science professionals for supervisory and teaching positions within radiology departments and schools, as well as in other health care facilities. The radiologic science administration program gives credit for prior clinical courses and for general education courses required for licensure. It provides clinicians with the management expertise and related skills needed to become managers of their departments. Students may enroll in the ASRSA or BSRSA program while working through an ARRT approved radiologic technology full educational certificate program, but may not complete the degree program until the certificate program has been completed and the transcripts verified. 

    The Associate of Science degree, with a major in Radiologic Science Administration provides a degree completion option for individuals with certification in radiography. Program options include courses to complete an associate's degree that will also be credited if you continue on for a bachelor's degree. Our faculty members have practical experience in radiologic science administration and health administration and will work one-on-one with students.

    The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) now require all graduates of schools of radiology to hold an associate's degree in order to sit for the national board registry exam for licensure. Most states require licensure, and requirements vary per state. Eligibility requirements for the ARRT certification in radiography, effective January 1, 2015, require candidates to have earned an associate (or more advanced) degree from an accrediting agency. Students currently enrolled in or planning to begin a radiography program may complete the required general education courses at Saint Joseph's College, while they continue their radiography program. Formal training programs in radiography are not available at Saint Joseph's College.

    • Christy Smallwood

      Christy Smallwood, Asst. Manager of Imaging Services at Moffitt Cancer Center

      Everyone from my advisor to the Instructors have been so nice and have made my experience so far very easy to deal with. As an adult who has worked for over 35 years, this was a very frightening experience to begin school again in my fifties, but everything about my experience thus far has been great.
