Major code BT5510

49–56 hrs

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 BTAS utilizes 96 hours of associate degree credit, of which 36-45 hours must be in a technical field. Another 96 hours are needed to meet the minimum for a baccalaureate degree. In addition to the 49-56 hours of major requirements, the student should expect to spend 24-36 hours meeting general education requirements and prerequisites. The remaining 4-23 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.
