The Bachelor of Applied Science in Technology offers students who have graduated from a community college or technical college with an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree an opportunity to pursue a professional career path and extend their education. The AAS degree must have a technical emphasis related to graphics and imaging and a GPA of 2.50. Students with an earned AAS degree can transfer up to 64 college credits. After taking an additional 60 hours from Pittsburg State University students graduate with a Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) with a major in Technology and an emphasis in Digital and Print Media.
The two years needed to complete the BAS provides hands-on experiences for a real-world job. In addition, this program gives additional orientation to the graphics industry, theory, logic, leadership, and marketing skills, in preparation for professional opportunities.
Program requirements may vary based upon the student’s Associate of Applied Science degree. Consult an academic advisor in the graphics department for specific degree requirements.
