Are you a student or working adult looking to advance your career? Do you wish to build upon your Associate’s degree to finally snag that supervisory or management role? A Bachelor degree in BTAS can change your life both professionally and personal. The University of Cincinnati Online offers a two-year Bachelor of Technical and Applied Studies program for those who have an associate degree. Here are some of the benefits of earning a BTAS degree:

Higher compensation

In general, a Bachelor degree in BTAS demands higher skills and offers higher pay. Studies show that college graduates earn significantly more money throughout their lifetime than those with a lower level education.


Earning a Bachelor of Technical and Applied Studies degree increases your value in today’s workplace. As a result, employers that offer items such as health care, retirement funds (just to name a few) for you and your family are most likely offered to those with a post-secondary degree.
