Hastings College is a great place to earn the credits required to apply to the Mary Lanning Healthcare School of Radiologic Technology, a program designed to train you to be a well-qualified radiographer!
Mary Lanning Partnership
The full program is four years, with two years at Hastings College, where you can enjoy regular student activities and college life. You’ll follow this experience with two years in the radiology program at Mary Lanning Healthcare in Hastings.
Upon successfully completing the cooperative Rad Tech program, you’ll receive a Bachelor of Arts degree in Health Systems from Hastings College plus an Associate of Applied Science Degree from Mary Lanning, making you eligible to apply for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) certification examination. You’ll work closely with your advisor to chart your course.
This exciting program prepares you for a career in demand — but note the program is competitive, with a minimum GPA of 3.0 needed to apply to Mary Lanning.
Create your future
Go further with a Hastings education
Thanks to our small class sizes (most have fewer than 20 students!), and a student-to-faculty ratio of 12:1, you’ll work closely with faculty and your advisor to complete your degree in four years. In fact, most students who graduate from Hastings do so in four years!
Our block-style semester structure means you’ll take just one or two classes at a time — which really lets you focus more intently on each class. It also lets faculty devote more time to every student because they’re only teaching one or two classes in a block!
Graduate with experience
At Hastings College, radiography majors have the opportunity expand their understanding of the world by studying abroad. Many take advantage of additional experiences and insights that help advance career options. What does all this mean? You’ll graduate from Hastings ready to succeed.
At every step in your path, you’ll appreciate the stepping stones of teaching, counseling, inspiring, supporting and guiding from our engaged faculty. It’s an experience that’s true to Hastings College and you won’t find it anywhere else.
All the extras aren't extra
No-cost study abroad — During your third year on campus, you’ll spend a transformational two-week block studying abroad. And thanks to donors, you’ll experience this at no additional cost. France, Ireland, Peru, Spain, Honduras, the United Kingdom…where will you go?
Books included — Afraid of a $400 textbook? No more! We’ve eliminated the high cost of text books by working with our bookstore to provide all required textbooks. This will save you $1,000 or more each year.
iPad + Apple Pencil — We’ll set you up with an iPad and Apple Pencil — and help you learn how to best incorporate these tools into your studies. From digital notes (that you’ll never lose!) to pictures of lab setups, professors and students find creative, new ways to use this perfect combination of technology and teaching every semester!
