NOTES:  1.  Hours listed for the NSCC program are based on the 2004-2005 catalog.  The Associate of Applied Science Degree from Nashville State Community College may require more hours than are indicated on this program of study.  Because of the BS in Professional Studies degree requirements, only 57 of those AAS hours are applicable to the BSPS degree.
2.  Lower division APSU general education courses required for the BSPS that are not a part of your NSCC associate degree requirements may be taken at Nashville State Community College and transferred to Austin Peay State University.
3.  All upper division BSPS courses from APSU are offered online.
