This leaves only 18 credit hours of prescribed general education courses needed to earn the A.A.S. degree. Completion of this A.A.S. degree also enables students with the option of transferring the credits from this program to the University of Northern Iowa to pursue a Bachelor of Arts in Technology Management.
