The Bachelor of Technical and Applied Studies (B.T.A.S.), offered on all five regional campuses and through the Division of Lifelong & Distance Learning, is primarily intended for students who have already completed a two-year degree program from an accredited community college, regional campus, or technical college, and who wish to pursue a baccalaureate degree. The program provides students with knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary for advancement in their chosen careers, and integrates the technical skills developed within applied associate degree programs with the professional skills inculcated in a bachelor’s degree program. A completion degree, the B.T.A.S. utilizes 60 hours of associate degree credit, of which a minimum of 24 hours must be in a technical field. A minimum of 120 hours are needed to meet the requirements for a baccalaureate degree. In addition to the 36-38 hours of major requirements, the student should expect to spend up to 18 hours meeting general education requirements and prerequisites. The remaining 4-12 hours are elective. A course may not count for two requirements within the major. (See also, “Graduation Requirements—Universitywide.”) Consultation with an academic advisor is highly recommended.
This is a completion degree for students with a minimum of 60 hours of associate degree credit of which a minimum of 24 hours is in the technical field.
