B.S. in Aerospace and Occupational Safety to M.S. in Aviation

This program allows the exceptional student to complete the Bachelor of Science in Aerospace and Occupational Safety (BSAOS) and Master of Science in Aviation (MSAV) degrees.

Upon completing the BSAOS requirements, the Bachelor of Science degree in Aviation and Occupational Safety will be conferred, and students will be enrolled in the MSAV degree. In any graduate course taken by an undergraduate student, a grade of "B" or better must be earned. If a grade of "C" or "F" is earned in any of the MSA courses taken lieu of the undergraduate courses in the BSAOS degree, the student will be removed from the MSAV program and may continue to complete the BSAOS degree only.

If the student chooses to leave the program before the completion of the MSAV program and has acquired the minimal hours required for graduation with the B.S. in Aerospace and Occupational Safety, any MSAV transition courses used to meet graduation requirements will be noted as undergraduate courses for the purpose of graduation.

Approved Courses for the Combined Option

Students enrolled in the combined option must consult their academic advisor and the MSAV program coordinator to determine appropriate course selection. Students will spend three academic years in undergraduate-level study and then, during their senior year, will be allowed to take up to three 500-level graduate MSA courses instead of an equal number of undergraduate Open Electives and Safety Electives and/or substitute the SF 320 Human Factors in Aviation undergraduate course with the MSA 545 Human Factors in Aviation course.
