What Is Radiologic Technology?Radiologic Technology is the technical science related to the use of X-rays or radioactive substances for medical diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.
Why Study Radiologic Technology?Radiologic technologists work on the cutting edge of scientific progress. The field encompasses several disciplines from which to choose and, with increasing demand in health care settings around the country, radiologic technology offers the potential for job stability and a good salary. Radiologic technologists study X-rays or radioactive substances for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes. Perimeter College offers students the required general studies, then partners with two programs, DeKalb Medical Center (Emory Decatur Hospital) of Radiologic Technology and Grady Health Systems, to offer radiology specialty courses. After successful completion of the Radiologic Technology pathway and the passage of a national exam, students become registered radiologic technologists (radiographers). Radiologic technologists can specialize in more than one procedure. From performing sonograms for expectant mothers to furnishing X-rays of broken bones to providing radiation treatments, the job is a rewarding one whose contribution to patient care is significant. This pathway is an associate degree career program established in partnership with local hospitals. It should not be confused with the separate and different Perimeter College pathway, Health Sciences -- Radiologic Sciences Pathway, A.S., which constitutes the first two years of a four-year allied health degree that must be completed at a four-year university. Please be advised that international students in F-1 immigration status are not eligible for the Radiologic Technology Pathway, A.S. program, at Georgia State University’s Perimeter College. The partnering institutions, Grady Health Systems School of Radiologic Technology and Emory DeKalb School of Radiologic Technology, are not authorized by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to enroll international students in F-1 status.

Program InformationFounded in the past century, the field of religious studies endeavors to better understand religion by means of modern academic approaches. Philosophical questions are considered, such as are all mystical experiences in essence the same, and can we reconcile evil with the existence of god(s)? But the field also asks anthropological, sociological, political, literary, and historical questions: How have the beliefs and practices of Shinto shaped the modern Japanese corporation? Why did first-century Gnostic Christianity lose out to what we would eventually come to know as Christian Orthodoxy? What is the meaning of the “Epic of Gilgamesh”? Who was the Buddha?
