Bachelor of Science in Technical and Applied Studies
The Bachelor of Technical and Applied Studies is intended for students who have completed a technical, two-year degree program from an accredited community college, regional campus, or technical college. Many of our students want to complete their bachelor’s degree, so they can apply for supervisory or managerial positions in their field. Others want to complete a four-year degree for personal fulfillment or to prepare for future employment opportunities.
The program integrates the technical skills developed in associate degree programs with the professional skills includ-ed in a bachelor’s degree program. With advising, students will take a sequence of courses that will:
1) meet Ohio University’s general education and baccalaureate degree requirements,
2) follow naturally from and amplify the learning experiences in their associate degree subject areas, and
3) assist them with advancement in their workplaces.
The curriculum combines oral and written communication skills with the study of applied leadership theory and prac-tice. Three core courses designed specifically for the program are sequenced to help students make the transition from technical to professional studies (TAS 3010, Introduction to Technical and Applied Studies), to learn research meth-ods and technologies (TAS 3210, Research for Technical and Applied Studies), and to synthesize and apply what they have learned through a leadership skills project (TAS 4510, Technical and Applied Studies Capstone Seminar). In addition, students will improve their technological competencies and will focus on four subject areas: (1) Professional Skills; (2) Cultural, Political, and Social Issues; (3) Behavioral Sciences; and (4) Leadership and Organization.
