Gain the Skills and Experience to Thrive in an Exciting Healthcare Career

St. Kate's radiography associate program emphasizes consideration for the physical, psychological, and technological needs of patients and families. You'll gain insights into anatomy, physiology, and human disease, along with radiographic sciences. Rigorous classroom instruction and hands-on clinical experiences will give you a thorough understanding of radiographic procedures and patient care.

We integrate interactive learning strategies, including simulation activities, to prepare students for clinical experiences. Our faculty are experienced and dedicated to helping you succeed. They will provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to become a competent and compassionate radiographer.

Students are scheduled for clinical 2-3 days per week, 8 hours per shift, within the Twin Cities metro area. Should a student desire to experience an evening rotation, the timing and scheduling are mutually agreed upon by the clinical affiliate, the program, and the student. This opportunity is available to each student; however, the opportunity may not be available at every clinical site. Specialty/modality experiences are also available to students. Specialty experiences become available upon meeting the program/ARRT minimum criteria for being board-eligible, typically during a student's final semester in the program.

Upon completion of the program, students are eligible to take the national certification exam, offered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).

If you are applying to the associate radiography program, you'll first enroll as a pre-radiography student and take the liberal arts and sciences courses required for your degree. Enrollment as a "pre-student” does not guarantee progression into radiography courses.

We also offer various student support services, including career counseling, internship opportunities, and financial aid.
