NOTES:  1.  The Associate of Applied Science Degree from Hopkinsville Community College may require more hours than are indicated on this program of study.  Because of the BS in Professional Studies degree requirements, only approximately 49 of those AAS hours are applicable to the BSPS degree.
2.  Lower division general education courses required for the BSPS  that are not a part of your AAS degree requirements may be taken at Hopkinsville Community College and transferred to Austin Peay State University.
3.  All upper division BSPS courses from APSU are offered online.
