Degree Overview

While working to complete your Associate’s degree in Radiography, you can also earn your Bachelor’s degree in Community Health through the dual degree option. A degree in Community Health can help you better understand and meet the needs of a broader population. The Radiography and Community Health program directors will work together as your co-advisors, creating an individualized course sequence plan that integrates courses from both programs. As part of the Community Health curriculum, students can choose from one of the concentrations in Human Services, Women’s Health, Public Health, Gerontology or Healthcare Business to expand their understanding of a specific area of health care.
