Technology and Workforce Learning - BAS of Technology (Technical Teacher Education)

Type: Pre-Professional

This program offers students who have graduated from a two-year associate degree technical program the opportunity to extend their education and training.  All associate degree graduates (with a minimum of 2.5000 GPA) can transfer up to 64 college credits to Pittsburg State.  Graduates receive a Bachelor of Applied Science degree with a major in technology and a selected emphasis by completing an additional minimum of 60 hours from PSU.  The degree program content is based on previous academic and technical preparation.

Like two-year technical programs, this bachelor degree gives students complete, hands-on training for a real-world job. Students learn engineering technology, theory, logic, leadership, and business skills to broaden their knowledge, and to better prepare them for management opportunities. Coursework is both specialized and comprehensive.  Emphasis areas are similar to the programs completed in the associate degrees.  Technical areas through the Technology Management department are Environment and Safety emphasis, Human Resource Development emphasis and Technology Management emphasis.
