Hours required and general/college requirements


A minimum of 120 semester hours, of which 36 must be advanced, and fulfillment of degree requirements for the Bachelor of Applied Sciences degree as specified by the University Core Curriculum  in the Academics  section of this catalog and the College of Information  requirements.

Major requirements, 66 hours


Broken down into area of specialization, technical and professional foundations, and technical and professional development concentrations.

Area of specialization, 21 hours


Comprised of courses related to a specific applied STEM occupation, field or subject. This component may include traditional or applied STEM courses completed for an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree at a community college. In addition, technical credit received by active-duty military or veterans may be applied to this degree plan. Other students who have not created an area of specialization through courses taken in a community college or in the military, may create one by selecting a primary STEM area of study in consultation with the appropriate advisors.

Technical and professional foundations, 21 hours


Technical and professional development concentrations, 24 hours


Consists of one or two separate multidisciplinary STEM concentrations, developed in collaboration between the BAS program and other appropriate disciplinary units. Each concentration will consist of a minimum of 12 credit hours that serve to enhance the skills a student has acquired through prior education or are complimentary to the student’s career plans. Prerequisite and/or a series of prerequisite courses may be required for certain concentrations.This component may include traditional or applied STEM courses completed for an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree at a community college. In addition, technical credit received by active-duty military or veterans may be applied to this degree plan.

Minor requirements


None required.

Electives, 12 hours


Varies with individual program. Any approved UNT courses the student and the advisor deem appropriate to the degree may be selected. Caution must be exercised to ensure the student fulfills the university requirement of 36 hours of advanced-level coursework. This component may include traditional or applied STEM courses completed for an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree at a community college. In addition, technical credit received by active-duty military or veterans may be applied to this degree plan.

Other requirements


  • A total of 36 hours of upper-division work
  • At least 24 hours of upper-division work in residence
  • A total of 60 hours of applied or traditional STEM coursework (may come from major requirements or electives)
