Radiography

70-credit Associate of Applied Science Degree

Watch a video about our Radiography program.

The radiographer is a technologist who produces images of the human body to aid physicians in the diagnosis of injuries and disease. In the Radiography program, learn to perform duties including positioning patients to acquire needed films, selecting appropriate X-ray exposure factors, aligning X-ray equipment, processing images photographically or electronically, and storing and retrieving images.

The Radiography program will not be open to new applicants for the fall 2013 start.

  • Prepare for jobs such as radiologic technologist, X-ray technician or radiographer.
  • This is a partnership program; the Milwaukee Area Technical College program is being offered at WCTC through a consortium effort that combines course work at WCTC (general education courses), MATC and on-site classes (major coursework).
  • Upon program completion, be prepared to take the entry-level certification examination administered by the American Registry of Radiography Technologists (ARRT).
  • Accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiology.
  • Students will graduate from the host college – MATC – not WCTC.
  • Select credits may transfer to other four-year institutions.

Credit Transfer Opportunities

WCTC has agreements with local high schools and various four-year colleges and universities that enable students to transition more seamlessly from high school to WCTC to four-year colleges. Transcripted credit agreements provide high school students the opportunity to take WCTC courses at their high schools. Agreements with four-year colleges enable WCTC graduates in selected programs to transfer credits, often at junior-level standing. Agreements currently in place for this program are listed below.

High School Transfer Opportunities

There are currently no transcripted credit agreements for Radiography. For more information, contact your academic advisor.

Partnership Program

What is a Partnership Program?

Waukesha County Technical College has partnership agreements with other Wisconsin Technical College System colleges to offer selected allied health programs. Through the partnership agreements, the “host” college offers the program, but saves slots for students from WCTC and other cooperating colleges.

How does a partnership program work?

WCTC students who enroll in partnership programs may enroll in general education courses at WCTC. Most major coursework is taken through the host college via videos, distance education and/or traveling to the host college. Clinical work will be performed ether in the WCTC district or host college district, depending on the program of study. Students enrolled in partnership programs will graduate from the host college, not WCTC.
