Occupational Education

Bachelor of Science

The graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Occupational Education will use the knowledge and skill obtained in the program to teach and train people in a variety of settings from education to industry.

The specific area of expertise is usually determined by the student's previous vocational and/or junior college program studies and experience. Being a 2+2 program, this degree is intended to compliment and build on a student's Associate's Degree along with their core experience, expanding their vocational and/or technical core competencies used to perform required workplace tasks, including problem solving and critical thinking.

The program provides students with a blend of academic and vocational technical teaching which responds to specific occupational updating, professional growth and enhancement, and state-of-the-art information sharing for and with vocational technical educators.
