Pre-Radiology, Associate of Science

Western Wyoming Community College and Weber State University have entered into an articulation agreement which allows students interested in pursuing a degree in Radiologic Technology to take their prerequisite courses at Western and then complete the radiology courses through Weber. The Associate of Science degree with an emphasis in Pre-Radiology will fulfill the prerequisite requirements for the Radiologic Technology program at Weber. Students should apply to Weber and their Radiology program in the fall of their sophomore year. 

Weber’s outreach program allows accepted students who are site bound an opportunity to complete an Associate of Applied Science in Radiologic Technology. These students may continue to live in their own community and work on their degree. Students accepted to Weber’s program are required to travel to Utah for course work and to various hospitals for clinical instruction once a month.

Radiologic Technology is an applied skill and science pertaining to the various types of ionizing radiation used in both the diagnostic and therapy fields. A Registered Technologist is qualified to work in public hospitals, clinics, and doctors’ offices. In addition, jobs are available as technical sale representatives for x-ray equipment and supply companies and in industrial applications. The Technologist’s duties generally include making x-ray exposures, aiding the radiologist during fluoroscopy, processing films, assisting in special procedures, and transporting patients to and from x-ray.
