The Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) in Learning Technologies is designed to meet the increasing workforce demand to support schools, businesses, and industries, with a particular emphasis on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). This degree prepares students for careers through a broad knowledge of tools, techniques, and methods used by learning technology professionals. Some of the areas of focus include technologies for internet development, game design, instructional systems, and information processing. This program helps graduates develop critical thinking skills and problem-solving competencies for selecting, using, and implementing a variety of technology tools in STEM fields. The program will educate a new generation of learning technology professionals capable of taking a leadership role applying technology and creating innovative applications for information and knowledge management initiatives within an organization.
While the degree can be completed by traditional undergraduate students, the BAS degree is also structured to meet the needs of students who transfer to UNT with earned post-secondary hours. Coursework focuses on learning strategies that allow students with a natural inclination toward STEM to pursue their passions in applied contexts.
