Bachelor of Science in Applied Technology Combines Advanced Technology Courses With a Classic Business Curriculum


California Southern University has announced the availability of a new online degree plan: the Bachelor of Science in Applied Technology (BSAT). The BSAT combines advanced technology courses—in subject such as e-commerce, systems analysis, information security, and emerging technologies—with the core business, marketing, and management courses that are essential to any well-rounded business degree.

“CalSouthern’s Bachelor of Science in Applied Technology degree is an innovative degree program that is designed for our digital world where technology is ever-changing,” says Dr. John Minchin, Dean of CalSouthern’s School of Business. “Technical expertise can no longer be confined to specific departments within an organization; business leaders across every facet of a company are increasingly required to combine an understanding of basic principles of technology with traditional business acumen.”

CalSouthern’s BSAT is well-suited for students who have taken technology courses at the community, technical, or vocational college level. However, while it’s an excellent degree-completion opportunity for those who have completed all or part of an associate program in a technology-related field, a background in technology is not required for this degree.

Founded in 1978, California Southern University is an accredited online university offering online degree programs at the associate, bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral levels in business, law, criminal justice and psychology to an international student body, utilizing a proprietary learning system. CalSouthern is accredited by the Distance Education Accreditation Commission. The Distance Education Accrediting Commission is listed by the U.S. Department of Education as a nationally recognized accrediting agency. The Distance Education Accrediting Commission is a recognized member of the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. To learn more about CalSouthern, please visit
