Degree Planning

Build your educational plan

The following shows how to build an educational plan specifically for the Bachelor’s of Applied Science (BAS) degree in Business Management & Technology (BMT) but you can use this same process to build a draft of an educational plan for any degree.

Students do not need to have completed an associate’s degree to start this bachelor’s program.

Students new to the BAS in Business Management & Technology program must follow the most recent catalog degree requirements. Students who started the program in a previous year may follow either set of requirements.

From the catalog degree requirements page (see Step 1) download or print the Degree Planner worksheet. You can also create your own quarter-by-quarter spreadsheet.

Students do not need to have completed an associate’s degree to start this bachelor’s program. Students will need to complete all degree required courses. The complete list of degree options and requirements, including program eligibility and course outcomes, can be found in the college catalog on the Business Management & Technology degree page.

Students may complete the BAS BMT program either part-time or full-time as shown below. Students may take courses in any order as long as they adhere to the pre-requisites for each course. Students may start the program in either FallWinter, or Spring Quarter.

Please note that sample plans show only what one student chose for their course options. Once accepted into the BMT program, students will be able to choose areas of focus. For example, students who want a stronger emphasis on technology may choose IT 330 – Cloud Technologies for Business, while students who want a stronger emphasis on business may choose BTS 389 – Ecommerce Development Strategy. This is just one example used to show how this unique degree allows students to take courses in the business, management and technology areas that are best suited to their career path.

Sample Full-time Plan: Fall Quarter start

Ask yourself these questions and plan accordingly:

  1. How many classes do you plan to take each quarter?
  2. Do you plan to take classes during Summer Quarter?
  3. Do you have any missing prerequisite courses?

For example, let’s say you were planning to take courses during the summer. You could take ECON& 202 during Fall, Winter, Spring, or Summer Quarter. However, not all courses are offered during summer and you may want to save ECON& 202 for Summer Quarter.

If a course has a prerequisite, it will be listed in the course description. Some courses have prerequisites, and some have recommended courses that a student might take to better prepare. The following table shows the sequence of courses based both on prerequisites and recommendations:
