The OU College of Professional and Continuing Studies offers a bachelor’s degree with a major in Aviation that can help you achieve your career goals. The Bachelor of Science with a Major in Aviation offers four concentrations for students to consider. The concentrations allow you to develop the knowledge, leadership, and communication skills required to work in management positions. The curriculum includes a strong foundation in aviation principles, as well as the laws and regulations that may affect your role in the field. Each concentration has a strong business focus to prepare students to function efficiently in the business world of aviation or other related jobs.

What to Expect

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.

Only students accepted into the Aviation Management – Flying Concentration or Professional Pilot Concentration AND get a flying spot will be able to fly. Unfortunately, students in other non-flying aviation or aerospace programs will not be able to fly.

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.
