Bachelor of Technical and Applied Studies (Online degree)

The Bachelor of Technical and Applied Studies (BTAS) 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. 

The BTAS utilizes 60 credit hours of associate degree credit, of which 24 credit hours must be in a technical field.  Another 60 credit hours are needed to meet the minimum for a baccalaureate degree.  In addition to the 36-38 hours of major requirements listed below, the student may expect to spend 18hours meeting general education requirements and prerequisites.  The remaining 4-12 hours are elective.  A course may not count for two requirements within the major.  Consultation with an Ohio University academic advisor is highly recommended.
