Employment of radiologic technologists is expected to increase about 17% from 2008-2018. Demand for technologists can tend to be regional. As the population grows and ages, there will be an increasing demand for diagnostic imaging.
Dr. Paula Scaramozzino, Chair of Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences, has been faculty at Mount Aloysius since 1998 and has an Ed.D. in Higher Education Leadership from Nova Southeastern University. She has worked in the imaging field since 1983 and is certified in radiography and magnetic resonance imaging.
Dr. Scaramozzino is an active member of the American Society of Radiologic Technologists and the Pennsylvania Society of Radiologic Technologists. Students in the radiography program participate in research projects pertaining to real world issues pertaining to the medical imaging field. Their research is presented at the Pennsylvania Society of Radiologic Technologists yearly conference and at the Reasearch Symposium held at Mount Aloysius College.
Ms. Sharon Miller, MS., RT (R)(MR)(M)(CT), Assistant Professor, joined Mount Aloysius in 1999. She is the Clinical Coordinator for the Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences program. Ms. Miller is President of the Pennsylvania Society of Radiologic Technologists.
She provides opportunities for students to attend summer externships at the University of North Carolina, Johns Hopkins, Pinnacle Health Care, and Shriners Hospital in Erie. Students spend a week at the facility and identify a research project currently being conducted at the facility. Students present their findings to their peers and faculty.
"Since I was a young girl, I have always wanted to be a Deaf Interpreter. While searching for colleges with a Deaf Interpreting Program, it was clear it was going to be a hard task to follow.
There are not many schools that offer a top of the line program for a field that is now starting to bloom. I stumbled upon Mount Aloysius College and was extremely excited I could have found the college that was just right for me. I planned a visit which included a tour of the campus led by two students who were in the Interpreting Program and by the end of the tour; I knew Mount Aloysius College was the perfect choice for me.
The program is excellent. The classes are enjoyable and a day never passes where I don't learn something new. The professors in the program are always willing to lend a helping hand but most importantly; they have a way of making learning fun. I have Mount Aloysius College to thank for allowing me to fall in love with Deaf Interpreting all over again."

Science develops in a multidimensional sphere of research and discovery. Advances in one branch of science – astronomy, oceanography or biology - will directly affect the entire universe of “what is known” in chemistry, physics and possibly even theology.
Your choice of a degree in General Science opens many doors. A General Science major prepares scientifically curious students to follow a number of career paths. Ideally suited to match MAC’s Elementary Education curriculum, General Science studies also enable students to develop a well-honed, critical world-view. In conjunction with a liberal arts core curriculum, General Science grads gain a well-rounded appreciation for the “grand synthesis” of intellectual pursuit – the integration and cohesiveness of broad areas of thought.
The major will also develop their ability to communicate verbally and in writing what they’ve learned and what they believe. Further, General Science studies will bring students to an appreciation of the Scientific Method of inquiry and to distinguish between scientific law, theory and hypothesis.
General Science studies foster the overall rounding of a person, and encourage a high level of sophistication when evaluating scientific information. Graduates of this exciting program will be well-positioned to make informed decisions in areas of their personal and professional lives requiring deeper appreciation of the sciences. Their work in this exciting degree area will encourage in-depth evaluation of scientific elements of issues and controversies of a rapidly developing world.
The program offers preparation for future graduate work and/or entry level into the public or private sectors requiring a scientific focus. Additionally, this program offered in conjunction with the College’s Elementary Education major will prepare students with a solid grounding in the sciences to become more knowledgeable and effective providers of instruction.
