The BSNET/MBA program is offered in conjunction with the School of Business & Technology. The dual degree track requires a total of 154-157 credits. Students are awarded their bachelor's degree by completing 60 credits in the arts and sciences component, 48 credits in the nuclear engineering technology component, and 10-13 credits for the free elective component. Students achieve graduate status after completion of the 6-credit bridge component. The 30-credit graduate course component completes the master's degree requirements. See the credit requirements in chart form.
