The Mount Aloysius College Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences Department offers students a unique, hands-on education on radiologic technologies in a small classroom environment. The program involves a balance of liberal arts and technical coursework.

Brandon L Steach, RT (R) MR, graduated cum laude from Mount Aloysius in 2006 with a degree in radiography. Following graduation, he was offered four different jobs.

Mount Aloysius is the right fit for me because it’s small and student oriented.
