BIOL 145 and 146 are prerequisites to Year Two.

The General Education Requirements for the AAS listed above may be completed before, during, or after the Radiography Curriculum courses taken at Trinity. Currently, the AAS degree is strongly recommended but remains an optional choice for the student.
