Prepare to be a leader in the workplace.
The online bachelor's degree in technical leadership is an interdisciplinary degree intended for students who have earned technical and/or Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degrees and want to further their education through a bachelor's degree. The program will provide the knowledge and skills needed to undertake leadership and supervisory roles that complement the technical expertise the student acquired at the community or technical college. Students may complete the degree immediately after completion of an A.A.S. or after the student has gained additional technical work experience.
The certificates stack into the degree, creating multiple pathways for students to pursue the bachelor's while achieving short-term professional and academic benefit. You can choose from the following certificates:
- Communication & Leadership
- Regulatory Affairs
- Healthcare Leadership
- Personnel Supervision
- Small Business Entrepreneurship
Students earning the B.S. will complete all general education requirements (30 hours) as well as completing at least one certificate in an emphasis area (minimum 11 credit hours of coursework) and finally, completing an internship course (A&S 494 - Internship) or a capstone course specific to the B.S. degree in Technical Leadership (A&S 489 -Technical Leadership Capstone.) All students will take 15-24 hours of electives, and at least 30 of the total credits must come from courses at the 300 or 400 level.
Admission Requirements for the online B.S. in Technical Leadership can be found at Undergraduate Admission Requirements.
