Radiologic Science

University Transfer Options

While Durham Tech does not offer a degree program in Radiologic Science, students who wish to pursue a bachelor's degree in Radiologic Science at UNC-Chapel Hill should complete the Associate in Science (AS) degree.

The Associate in Science (AS)

The Associate in Science (AS) is intended for students who ultimately wish to complete a baccalaureate science degree at a four-year college or university. The AS curriculum courses focus on courses such as biology, chemistry, engineering, geology, mathematics, or physics.

Course Selection Guide

This course selection guide shown below has been developed by referencing the Baccalaureate Degree plan for the Bachelor of Science degree at UNC-Chapel Hill (UNC-CH). Note that this program has an early supplemental application deadline. See UNC’s Radiologic Science Admissions web page for more information.
