SUMMARY

Studying Radiography is not only a valuable choice, but often a mandatory first step for undergraduates seeking to pursue a career as a radiographist, a radiography lab technician, or a radiography equipment supplier. In fact, radiography is a very rare major coming in at the 157th most popular area of study. In the last year, there were 1,790 radiography graduates. In-state tuition for radiography at private universities is, on average, 2.6 times more costly than their public peers.

With just 80 colleges having programs for radiography you could have limited options as to the institutions you can choose from. If you're looking to immerse yourself with other radiography undergraduates, consider looking at schools in Texas which have more undergrads admitted to radiography than any other state. Zooming out, the top region to get a degree in radiography is in the Southeast region with AdventHealth University, Northwestern State University of Louisiana, and East Tennessee State University best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick of the best conference to study radiography is the Lone Star Conference with Midwestern State University representing the conference. That being said, our choice for the best school for radiography is University of Nebraska Medical Center, and here you can find our comprehensive list for the best colleges.

The objectively 'best' school might not actually be the 'best' school for every student. There might be tons of facets to consider when deciding on college. Things such as campus amenities, transportation services, and food would definitely alter your feelings of which school to attend. Here at authority.org, we have weighed the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you are interested in which radiography university is home to the top campus, the answer is St John's University-New York. If, for example, you are primarily interested in which university is home to the top campus, then we have a whole list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through student reviews, government databases, professor reviews, and more to compare each major in an unbiased and informative way. You can explore our well researched list for the universities with the best student life&nbsphere and our choice for the college with the best student life for radiography is Bellin College. Curious why? Keep scrolling to learn more about our top recommendations. Many of our decisions will probably shock you.

If price is a significant influence in your decisions, you might consider avoiding Quinnipiac University. Quinnipiac University&nbspappears to be the most expensive university for radiography, at least regarding out of state enrollment. We do have a list of the most expensive&nbspcolleges that could put the price tag at Quinnipiac University&nbspinto perspective. Additionally, you may care to know that radiography is the 333rd most expensive program in the United States, with an average associated cost of $21,000. To zoom out a little, the most expensive state for radiography on our list is Connecticut demonstrated by a cost of $46,790 at the main college in the state Quinnipiac University. To zoom out even further, the most costly region of the U.S. for radiography is the New England region which is best demonstrated with Quinnipiac University with a cost of $46,790, Saint Joseph's College of Maine with a cost of $36,720, and MCPHS University with a cost of $33,600.

Our cheapest region for radiography is the Southwest region which is represented by Midwestern State University with a cost of $7,516 and The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center with a cost of $21,946. In better news, the most affordable university for radiography is Inter American University of Puerto Rico-Barranquitas. Authority's comprehensive list of the most affordable schools can be explored here.

In-state students can anticipate paying around $9,100 for a degree in radiography. The cost swells substantially to an average of $20,300 for the out-of-state public-school student. Our pick for the university constituting the best value for radiography: MCPHS University. Here you can find our comprehensive list about the colleges we believe to be the best value&nbspoverall. With that said, this list is based on the assumption that you are an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition costs are considered, but as we do not know what state(s) you might qualify for in-state tuition, we are approaching this discussion through out-of-state tuition costs.

Earnings for radiography students range widely, but two-years after graduation graduates will regularly earn in the neighborhood of $56,000. There is much variation in pay; highest paid earners can rake in up to $91,800. Even straight out of university, the lowest end jobs within the radiography space earn $33,100, which isn't that bad. The top earning graduates for radiography come from MCPHS University&nbspand if you are looking for universities with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The all-around diversity of radiography lies pretty bad, ranking in only the 18th percentile of all programs. The college with the highest composite diversity for radiography is St John's University-New York&nbspand here you can find our comprehensive list of the universities which have the most diversity. The financial diversity of the Radiography major only sits within the 12th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is actually greater, ranking in the 23rd percentile. White students compose the largest proportion at 73% of those majoring in radiography. Additionally, 78% of students pursuing a radiography degree are women.

We have insufficient professors data for radiography to make the conclusions we normally would have made in this sentence. If we incorporate information beyond basic rankings it becomes clear that the college possessing the overall best instructors for radiography is The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. One will find an explanation of our ever evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, as well as some of the top instructors in the country.

Finally, the hardest college to get into for radiography is University of St Francis. While we do not necessarily see the value in it, we do have an extensive page of the hardest colleges to get into. But, we do hope you understand that considering academics from context primarily formed from superlatives might cause problems. We at Authority encourage you to explore our other pages on different universities and peruse a couple of our helpful background pages on beneficial things to look out for as your university search continues.
