Description

The Bachelor of Technical and Applied Studies degree is designed both for students beginning their academic study and for students with an associate degree or college-level coursework. The program accommodates varied educational backgrounds, develops competencies needed for success in a variety of work settings and offers major courses in schedules attractive to traditional students and to time- and place-bound adults. Students construct a meaningful plan for using the curriculum to explore and prepare for their preferred futures by completing a cornerstone course. A capstone course features a synthesizing of learning focused on foundational competencies and developing an electronic portfolio. This enables students to collect artifacts of their learning, which can be used to advance their careers.

The Technical and Applied Studies major includes the following optional concentrations:

  • The Applied Business concentration is an option for associate degree graduates or students with a business background who choose not to pursue the B.B.A degree, or for students who would like to gain knowledge about financial management, customer service, strategic management, labor students and leadership. The concentration includes a practicum.
  • The Computer Technology Application Development concentration provides students with the ability to program in languages typically utilized in contemporary business environments. Students will code in applications such as Visual Basic, C++, Java, C# and other industry-standard applications to develop programs employing event-driven and object-oriented techniques. In addition to the required program courses, students can select from a wide range of electives to complement their knowledge and further their interests in the field of application development including courses in web/multimedia development, IT support, databases, security, forensics and networking.
  • The Computer Technology Applied Computer Security and Forensics Technology concentration places an emphasis on security of desktops and local area networks, which often includes forensic work to prevent and/or determine and correct security issues. In addition to the required program courses, students can select from a wide range of electives to complement their knowledge and further their interests in the field of security, including courses in programming, web/multimedia development, IT support, databases and networking.
  • The Computer Technology General concentration provides the flexibility to prepare students for positions that require IT staff to perform a wide range of technical duties. In many organizations, it is common for an employee to function in a broad capacity using a multitude of skills to support both the technology and those who use it. In addition to the required program courses, students can select from a wide range of electives to complement their knowledge and further their interests in the field of IT support, including courses in programming, application software, databases, networking, security and forensics.
  • The Computer Technology Internet/Multimedia concentration focuses on scripting, server-side form handling, web database integration, and interactive and dynamic multimedia Internet development.

In addition to the required program courses, students can select from a wide range of electives to complement their knowledge and further their interests in the field of networking, including courses in programming, web/multimedia development, databases, security and forensics.
  • The Fraud Examination concentration prepares students, with a business background, to work in the field of detection and prevention of financial fraud and abuse in a company; including understanding ethical dilemmas and applying ethical principles to prevent occupational/financial fraud. This concentration also allows students to review and analyze past and current issues of fraud cases.
