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

This program allows the exceptional student to complete the Bachelor of Science in Aerospace and Occupational Safety (BSAOS) and Master of Science in Occupational Safety Management (MSOSM) degrees. This special program will challenge students and develop their knowledge and understanding of aerospace and occupational safety concepts while integrating their skills in aviation and aerospace applications.

Upon completing the BSAOS requirements, the Bachelor of Science degree in Aerospace and Occupational Safety will be conferred, and students will be enrolled in the MSOSM 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 courses taken in lieu of the Professional Development elective courses in the BSAOS degree, the student will be removed from the program and may continue to complete the BSAOS degree only.

If the student chooses to leave the program before the completion of the M.S. program and has acquired the minimal hours required for graduation with the BS in Aerospace and Occupational Safety, any M.S. 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 MSOSM program coordinator to determine appropriate course selection. Students will choose up to three graduate-level courses to replace an equal number of Open Elective courses in the BSAOS degree.
