The Division of Business Technology & Service is a community of professionals whose mission is to empower students to learn what they want to do and how to do it well.  The BTS faculty and staff accomplish this by: 

  • Creating a student-centered atmosphere
  • Providing work-relevant learning environments
  • Developing knowledge, skills, and professional attitudes
  • Providing work-based training through internships, live shop, and clinical experiences
  • Creating life-long learners
  • Continually upgrading applied curriculum
  • Utilizing active, career-specific advisory committees
  • Providing in-depth advising and mentoring.

Program Admission and Degree Requirements

The division’s instructional programs emphasize education AND training.  Our industry-trained faculty teach skills which are critical to functioning on the job.  Instruction is based upon specific competencies that are derived from the faculty’s collaboration with industry partners. As a result, students are given timely and relevant information to prepare them for the workplace. 

In addition to fun, hands-on coursework, students are given practical on-the-job experience gained through a supervised internship, practicum, or clinical study.  Advising of students is a high priority in Business Technology & Service.  Faculty are readily available to meet with students to offer their assistance whenever needed. 

Prior Learning Assessment:  Students who have a strong background of work experience or education are encouraged to discuss with their advisors the opportunity to challenge courses. 

Class Attendance:  Because attendance is important in the workplace, it will be emphasized as a class requirement.  Many classes have limited spaces or equipment available; therefore, if a student does not attend class, he/she may lose his/her class space to another student who is on a waiting list. 

Basic Skills Assistance:  Students who desire to enter post-secondary programs but need to brush up on basic skills will be enrolled in basic academic courses(s) as indicated by their SAT/ACT scores or other placement assessment.  The basic academic courses include:  Basic Reading (GNBPT 096), Basic English (GNBPT 097), and Basic Arithmetic (MTHPT 010). 

Technical Skill Assessment:  All candidates for any Business Technology & Service program degree or certificate are required to complete a Technical Skill Assessment specific to their program. 

Student Clubs:  Students are encouraged to assist in the development of new clubs in coordination with their program advisors.
