UNDERGRADUATE MAJORS

The Bachelor of Science with a Major in Aviation is designed for students who want to take the first step toward a career in Aviation. Aviation curriculum is closely mapped to the needs and demands of the aviation industry and to OU's general education guideline. The OU Extended Campus School of Aviation offers a Bachelor of Science degree with four aviation concentrations.

Professional Pilot Concentration

Students who fly at OU train in a modern fleet of aircraft, which features the very latest in aviation technology. Students will be prepared through a multi-engine, commercial rating and a required turbine transition course.

Aviation Management - Flying Concentration

This concentration trains students to become commercial or corporate pilots and includes a general business minor to further diversify their skill sets. The aviation management concentration has options that span from the flight deck to the boardroom.

Aviation Management - Non-Flying Concentration

The School of Aviation Studies offers this option for students who don’t wish to fly, but are interested in meeting the growing demands for aviation management positions. This concentration also includes a general business minor upon completion.

Aviation Management - Air Traffic Management Concentration

This concentration trains students for careers as air traffic controllers or in other aviation management fields, going well beyond the basic curriculum that the FAA has prescribed for AT-CTI schools. This concentration also includes a general business minor upon graduation.

DESTINATION 225°UNIVERSITY PATHWAY

The Destination 225° University pathway is designed for collegiate aviators who attend a Southwest® partner university or complete a Southwest Airlines® Campus Reach Internship

Our vision is to ease the barriers to becoming a pilot, and guide those who are selected to the University pathway in their next steps: gaining relevant flight experience with a Southwest Airlines partner, in order to put themselves in position to join the ranks as a Southwest Airlines Pilot. Destination 225° is designed to be highly accessible, cost-effective, and innovative.

Southwest is proud to offer this transition training with the university and corporate partners below.
