The Mission of the Radiologic Technology Program

The mission of the Radiologic Technology program at Southwestern Oklahoma State University at Sayre is to provide an undergraduate level program of higher education that will produce competent graduates with the skills required to succeed in the field of radiography. Upon completion of the program, students will be prepared to take the national certification exam, administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). In addition to exhibiting technical expertise and the safe use of ionizing radiation, graduates will provide high-quality patient care and leadership to their individual career path. The faculty and staff of SWOSU@Sayre are committed to providing a supportive environment for all students which is advantageous to the development of a desire for independent learning, enhancing the diverseness of all students’ development and ability to reach their full potential.

The Associate of Applied Science degree in Radiologic Technology is offered on the SWOSU Sayre campus through a partnership between Western Technology Center and SWOSU. The radiologic technology program at Southwestern Oklahoma State University at Sayre is accredited by the national accrediting agency, the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT), who is committed to helping programs providing education in radiologic technology achieve and maintain excellence in education.
