The Bachelor of Technical and Applied Studies (BTAS) program is ideal for students and working adults who want to move into supervisory or administrative positions within their company or industry. The program is designed to be a smooth transition from an associate degree to a bachelor degree. It is suitable for people who have work experience or who have earned an associate degree.

A Smooth Transition (2+2 Program)

    • The Bachelor of Technical and Applied Studies is a 2+2 program, meaning it is designed for students with an associate degree or 60 credit hours.
    • The program was designed to be an easy transition from the associate level to the bachelor level, making it easier on students to achieve a higher level of education.


  • For current high school students or those who still need to pursue their associate degree, there are multiple associate degree programs that align well for those that would like to complete their Bachelor of Technical and Applied Studies.
