The BST is customizable and allows you to build on prior credit to earn a bachelor’s degree with a career-oriented emphasis. The degree is designed in collaboration with faculty advisors. Here’s how to build a BST degree:

an AAS or an AS degree

or

a minimum of 30 credit hours in applied coursework

from a regional accredited college or university,

or

a minimum of 30 credits based on military training

 recommended by the American Council on Education,

or

at least 30 credits from a combination of military training and applied coursework

+

General education courses, At least 30 hours in a concentration, and Electives

=

Bachelor of Science in Technology Degree


The BST allows students to add a concentration of at least 30 hours (designed in collaboration with faculty advisors).

For example, you might add 30 hours of business-related courses to become better prepared to move into a management position within your career field.

  1. Completing MWSU general studies requirements (42-47 credit hours) for the Bachelor of Science degree. These courses (e.g. additional humanities, social science, science courses) may be completed at regional community colleges, online, or at Missouri Western.
  2. Developing a concentration related to your career goals. A minimum of 30 credit hours (e.g. 10 courses) are required.
  3. Completing at least 30 hours of upper division courses. Typically, these 30 hours will overlap substantially, or entirely, with the concentration.
  4. Maintaining a 2.3 GPA in the concentration.
  5. Attaining the minimum 120 credits required for graduation.

Sample combinations and concentrations

An AAS/AS degree, applied coursework or military training can serve as the base of a BST. Upon this base, a concentration is built. This concentration may include any combination of courses as long as the combination is educationally sound and has a cohesive theme supporting a career goal. The concentration must include at least 30 credits, including at least 18 upper-level credits.
