Customer Service Major & Minor


Program Overview:

The major in Customer Service leads to a Bachelor of Applied Human and Consumer Sciences. It is a bachelor completion program designed for students who have completed an associate's degree (AA, AS, or AAS) or 60 semester hours and earned a 2.0 GPA from prior college-level coursework. For many students, the BAHCS degree with a Customer Service major will be a “2+2” option, enabling students to take only two additional years of coursework beyond the two years already spent earning the associate degree. The Customer Service major is designed for students who, when graduates, are likely to work with customers, clients, or members of the public who are served by organizations/businesses.

There are two enrollment options for students interested in the Customer Service major: 

1. On-Campus Option

This option is designed for students who wish to meet face-to-face, on the Athens campus, for the majority of coursework. Some of the core Customer Service courses are delivered in online formats; a robust assortment of elective courses and complementary minor programs are offered on the Athens campus.

To apply for the on-campus option, please  fill out the Ohio University Undergraduate Admissions Application here:

2. Online Option
This program is designed for students who wish to participate in full-online courses, enrolled through Ohio University’s eCampus. 

The Patton College offers a variety of programs at Ohio University regional campuses and eCampus. All cohort programs and the courses therein are contingent on a specified minimum enrollment of students. Program start dates may be postponed if the minimum enrollment is not reached. This decision will be made no fewer than 30 days prior to the advertised start date.
