Delaware Radiology Technologist Degree Programs

Delaware Technical Community College

Delaware Technical Community College offers the state’s only radiologic technologist program, which leads to the Associate of Applied Science in Radiologic Technology. Students may enroll at the Owens or the Wilmington campus but will spend considerable time off-campus at clinical rotations. Clinical education begins during the second semester when students work Tuesdays and Thursdays while attending classes on campus on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. That schedule will change the third semester with students on campus two days a week and at their clinical rotation three days a week. The radiologic technology program admits 22 students each year with students generally allowed to choose between beginning the program in the summer or in the fall. Students typically complete their general education coursework, which could take a year or more, before beginning the radiologic technology program requirements.
