CEDAR FALLS, Iowa - The University of Northern Iowa is accepting applications for its Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) in Technology degree program scheduled to begin fall 2017. This undergraduate program is designed for Associate of Applied Science (AAS) graduates of career and technical programs from community colleges.
The courses in this program focus on industry and its organization, resources, processes and management technologies. Incorporating an applied approach to critical thinking, communication and problem solving skills, this program emphasizes the enhancement of management skills that build upon a strong technical background.
“The response and feedback from community college partners has been tremendously positive. For years, Iowa students with an AAS degree in a technology-based field have been looking for an in-state solution to obtaining a four-year degree,” said Chris Shaw, recruitment coordinator. “This program was designed with those students in mind.”
This manageable course sequence includes approximately two courses each semester, with a total of 62 units of credit. The program will be completed entirely online via eLearning, a Blackboard learning management system requiring Internet access and a web browser.
The program begins this fall using a cohort model in which a group of students moves together through the course sequence, with the degree to be earned in the fall of 2020. To learn more about the program and how to apply, visit distance.uni.edu/technology-bas.
