It is vital to success in the program that the student understands that consequences will incur for noncompliance of all scheduling requests, failure to meet milestones, and stage check failures. If continuous interventions are necessary, the student can expect grade reductions or dismissal from the program. Compliance with all schedules, FAA regulations, and course syllabi is a major part of the training for a career in the field of aviation.

Radiologic Sciences
Bachelor of Science (BS)
Southern Vermont College in Bennington, VT
The Radiologic Sciences program at Southern Vermont College is committed to quality education and excellence in providing competent entry‐level Radiologic Technologists who function as productive members of the healthcare team. Through a competency‐based program, graduates will demonstrate proficiency in the application of current and developing technologies, use effective verbal and written communication, think critically, apply appropriate radiation safety measures, and safely administer ionizing radiation to patients at hospitals, clinics, doctor’s offices, and other healthcare facilities. Radiography is the art and science of using radiation as a diagnostic tool in performing radiographic examination. Radiologic Technologists apply the knowledge of anatomy, physiology, positioning, radiographic technique, and radiation biology in performing medical x‐ray examinations using established radiation protection standards in limiting radiation exposure to patients, themselves, and others. As essential members of the healthcare team, radiologic technologists must be able to communicate effectively with patients, other healthcare professionals, and the public. Radiologic technologists must be compassionate, competent, and use problem‐solving and critical‐thinking skills in meeting the needs of their patients. Radiologic technologists are employed in various healthcare facilities, including hospitals, specialized imaging centers, and private physicians’ offices. They may also be employed as imaging department administrators or educators. The salaries and benefits are generally very competitive with other healthcare professionals and vary according to experience and geographic location. The need for sophisticated imaging management and leadership to respond to the clinical, organizational, and fiscal demands facing the healthcare industry supports the creation of advanced educational and skill development opportunities for imaging. Future changes to the profession include minimum degree requirements for Radiologic Sciences as well as Imaging Education and sub‐specialty areas. The American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) recently recognized the need for advanced degrees within the profession by adopting a new Bachelor of Science Radiologic Sciences (BSRS) curriculum. The BSRS curriculum is an expression of content that enhances entry‐level education and supports multiple, post‐primary specialty certifications as well as a transition to education and management in advanced clinical practice. The new BSRS curriculum emphasizes education in critical thinking, human diversity, sustainability, and written and oral communication. Students in the BSRS degree program will engage in topics with more depth and breadth, resulting in a broader knowledge base and skill set than the entry‐level radiographer. The Radiologic Sciences program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).

Life Sciences
Associate of Science (AS)
Landmark College in Putney, VT
Landmark College Life Sciences majors choose from one of two strands, health science or environmental science, so they can begin to focus on a career while gaining a solid foundation in the sciences. Hands-on scientific inquiry is one of the most exciting and meaningful ways to learn, and that is particularly true for students who learn differently. The principles of scientific investigation form the foundation of the Life Sciences program—and, as with all our other academic programs, the Life Sciences program is integrated with the College’s proven program to develop effective learning strategies and assistive technology skills. The curriculum for the 61-credit Life Sciences major incorporates the same General Education Core taken by all Landmark College students as part of their degree requirements, plus specific classes and labs focusing on the life sciences. Once students determine their focus (Health Science or Environmental Science) they will be required to take the following strand of courses which will be part of the 24 credits required in the Lab Science section. No other college in the country offers our depth of expertise in teaching science to students who learn differently. According to the National Student Clearinghouse, nearly one in five Landmark College graduates currently goes on to study a science-related major. Students say our faculty members “make science come alive” through their hands-on approach to teaching and their integration of Landmark’s learning strategies and use of assistive technology in the curriculum. Indeed, faculty members bring diverse academic backgrounds to the classroom, including specializations in human physiology, environmental studies, human ecology, biology, biology education, chemistry, and biochemistry. Our faculty are experts in their fields of science as well as in teaching science to diverse learners. The College’s faculty regularly present at regional and national conferences, and the expertise of its members is sought for textbook reviews, website content, and other applications by a variety of academic institutions. The College also received a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to develop a teaching manual documenting best practices in science instruction for educators working with students who learn differently. The program is housed in the Nicole Goodner-MacFarlane Science, Technology & Innovation Center, completed in August 2015. Facilities include several fully equipped laboratories, a preparatory room, and a number of dedicated science classrooms.
