Radiography Partnership Offered

SHU, Marion Technical College Join for Unique Online Degree Opportunity

Siena Heights University and Marion Technical College have recently partnered to offer a unique totally online degree opportunity for MTC radiography graduates.


The articulation agreement between the two institutions allows Marion Technical radiography graduates the opportunity to complete a Bachelor of Applied Science degree with SHU. marion technical.gif


“The Bachelor of Applied Science degree is a career-oriented degree designed for professionals with allied health, public safety, technical, or vocational training and experience, and graduates of two-year occupational programs,” said Deborah Carter, SHU’s dean for the College for Professional Studies. “The BAS is structured on the ‘inverted major’ concept which builds an individually designed academic degree program around the allied health, public safety, technical or occupational major the student has already completed.”


The Radiography Associate in Science degree from MTC transfers and qualifies as the BAS major at SHU. No additional coursework toward the major is required. Candidates may transfer up to 90 semester hours of credit from their associate degree program, other college study, college-equivalent military, corporate or professional training and/or CLEP testing. The Siena Heights online program offers completely online courses every 8 weeks geared to working adult professionals.


“The BAS degree builds on the specialized major brought to Siena Heights University and broadens the student’s intellectual horizons,” Carter said. “It is designed to take the candidate’s multi-faceted educational, training and work history fully into account in developing his/her program. We are extremely excited about what this partnership with Marion Technical College promises.”
