Length of Program

Once accepted into the program five consecutive semesters that include a summer session will be required in order to graduate.

Program Courses (43 Credit Hours)

The curriculum is designed to develop critical thinking skills by integrating theoretical concepts with practical experience. While all courses are taught at the college, a clinical (practicum) education takes place at several sites.

Clinical experience is carefully interwoven with classroom instruction to reinforce theoretical concepts. During the clinical rotation, the student-to-technologist ratio is one to one.
