About the Mizzou Radiography Program
Established in 1960, the Radiography Program is the only baccalaureate level program at a public institution of higher education in Missouri. Graduates have demonstrated their superior achievement through their performance on national certifying examinations with a 100% overall pass rate. We have a long-standing history of preparing leaders in Imaging Sciences through the Bachelor of Health Science degree. Since 1967, we have graduated nearly 600 radiologic technologists, and assisted over 100 registered technologists in reaching their goal of completing a Bachelor’s degree.
In addition to completing their educational foundation in medical radiography, students in the MU Radiography Program engage in learner-centered instruction in advanced imaging modalities, management principles and research strategies that enable them to become leaders in medical imaging and continue to graduate study. Our program has been preparing students for certification in areas of computerized tomography and magnetic resonance imaging since 1997. In 2020, we began offering a Master’s of Health Science in Clinical and Diagnostic Sciences with an emphasis in Medical Imaging to promote the professional and academic development of clinical leaders in education, industry and health services. The development of the MHS coursework allowed us to expand our advanced imaging offerings to include cardiac interventional radiography and vascular interventional radiography. Completion of the advanced imaging coursework leads to eligibility for certification in that area.
Degrees and Certificates
The Bachelor of Health Science in Clinical & Diagnostic Sciences with an emphasis in Radiography prepares you to complete the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) national examination and become a registered technologist.
This program provides an avenue for registered technologists who have graduated from an associate or hospital-based program to obtain their bachelor’s degree. Classes are offered both on campus and online. Students will graduate with a Bachelor of Health Science in Clinical & Diagnostic Sciences with an emphasis in Radiography.
University of Missouri Radiography certificate programs are designed to provide the necessary knowledge to obtain ARRT credentials through the post-primary pathway in these specialty areas of imaging. All the didactic courses in the program are offered online, so you can conveniently take the courses right where you are, while receiving the personal attention you would receive in a regular classroom.
Prior completion of an ARRT-approved supporting category credential is required to pursue professional certification. In some cases, however, you can earn your supporting category credential through another organization.
The Master of Health Science in Clinical and Diagnostic Science (MHS CDS), emphasis in medical imaging is designed for radiographers who hold a bachelor’s degree and the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists Radiography credential.
