about the Applied Studies option
of the Bachelor of General Studies
Through a partnership with the Indiana building trades apprenticeship and training programs, USI recognizes technical training and the Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree as a significant milestone toward a bachelor's degree. Prospective students who have completed an apprenticeship program in selected building trades and hold an AAS from Ivy Tech Community College are eligible to pursue the applied studies option with a concentration in technical supervision and leadership or business development.
The technical supervision and leadership concentration will address engineering practices, communication skills, supervision and management practices, work-related research projects, problem solving, and leadership.
In addition to the required courses for one of the concentrations, students must complete University Core Curriculum requirements and meet all University requirements for graduation.
