Engineering transforms scientific discoveries into products that improve the way the world works and that make our lives safer, healthier and more productive. Engineering is an attractive career option for those who enjoy building or repairing items or designing new products, games or tools. Industry demand is high, with job prospects in branches of engineering continuing to grow. Civil, environmental, biomedical and software specialties are leading the pack. An additional draw is reflected in surveys that consistently indicate engineers enjoy high levels of job satisfaction.

Perimeter College provides a strong foundation for students wanting to pursue engineering and the college’s Regents Engineering Pathway Program paves the way for its students to continue their studies at respected universities.

Associate of Arts, Pathway – History

History is a branch of knowledge developed by studying, analyzing and interpreting the human past. It is the repository of mankind’s collective memory and experience.  Historians examine the past to understand the present. They investigate documents to explain how the contemporary world came about and provide context for evaluating present-day societies’ political actions, ideas and cultures.

Taking History courses provides more than interesting stories; it reveals patterns explaining current political actions, ideas or cultures. Understanding what is going on in the world today depends on understanding what’s happened in the past. Troubles in the Middle East, the fight for human rights and religious intolerance are conflicts dating back thousands of years. Perimeter College history courses provide in-depth study of issues, providing the background for knowledgeable decisions and rational life choices.

Studying world languages enhances your contribution as a member of the global marketplace. Whatever career you choose, your success will depend on your ability to communicate in culturally diverse environments. The ability to speak another language is an asset in business, medical fields and service occupations. Combining a world language degree with a degree in another field expands a student’s potential for success.

Perimeter College offers the widest range of world language courses of any associate degree-granting college in the Southeast.

9090 Career Programs

Career Programs

Career programs are designed for students who wish to complete a college program that will prepare them to enter employment at a level of competence requiring more than a high school education, but less than a four-year college or university degree.  As such, they do not have A-E sections of the Core Curriculum, but instead have sections that are specific to each program. Career programs are specifically designed for students who wish to prepare for a career through a short, intensive program of specialized study and general education. While the emphasis in career education is on specialized offerings, each degree program includes a selection of courses from an approved core of general education.

Programs Offered:

Associate of Science in Radiologic Technology

Career Programs Offered:

  • A.S. in Radiologic Technology in cooperation with DeKalb Medical School of Radiologic Technology
  • A.S. In Radiologic Technology in cooperation with Grady Health System School of Radiologic Technology

Radiologic Technology is the technical science related to the use of X-rays or radioactive substances for medical diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Radiologic technologists work on the cutting edge of scientific progress. The field encompasses several disciplines from which to choose and, with increasing demand in health care settings around the country, radiologic technology offers the potential for job stability and good salary.

Radiologic technologists study X-rays or radioactive substances for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes. Perimeter College offers students the first two years of general studies, then partners with two programs, DeKalb Medical Center of Radiologic Technology and Grady Health Systems, to offer radiology specialty courses.

After successful completion of the Radiologic Technology pathway and the passage of a national exam, students become registered radiologic technologists (radiographers). Radiologic technologists can specialize in more than one procedure. From performing sonograms for expectant mothers to furnishing X-rays of broken bones to providing radiation treatments, the job is a rewarding one whose contribution to patient care is significant.

Associate of Science in Radiologic Technology
