Radiologic Sciences Degrees and Certificates

Brookhaven College • El Centro College

Brookhaven College and El Centro College both offer associate degree programs in Radiologic Sciences. The programs differ significantly, so please look over the information for both to see which plan is the best fit for you.

Graduation from one of our Radiologic Sciences associate degree programs and successful completion of the ARRT examination qualifies you to be a radiologic technologist, or radiographer, and provides you with credentials to continue your education in other radiologic specialty disciplines. Successful completion of the exam leads to licensing by the Texas Department of Health as a certified medical radiologic technologist with the right to use the designation RT(R).

Brookhaven College

Brookhaven’s associate degree program accepts 35 students per entering class. Radiologic Sciences classes are admitted every Summer semester (June) and graduate in December two years later. The official application filing period begins the first day of the Spring semester and closes the last day of the Spring semester, with acceptance letters mailed two weeks prior to the start of the Summer semester. Once prerequisites are met, this degree can be completed in three regular semesters plus two summer semesters if you are a full-time student.

Both of these certificates are for graduates or students in their last semester of a radiography program or who are registered radiographers by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists and Certified Medical Radiologic Technologist licensed by the Texas Medical Board. After prerequisites are fulfilled, each of these certificates can be completed in three semesters.
