BSC Adds Transportation Program

Posted: Feb 1, 2006

Bismarck State College (BSC) recently began a new two-year degree program that will educate graduates for work in the transportation industry. Transportation and supply chain management was developed in collaboration with the Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute (UGPTI) and North Dakota State University and emphasizes the business end of the industry.

"The program deals with the movement of people, raw materials and finished goods," says Dr. Jane Schulz, BSC dean of instruction. "Graduates will have opportunities in trucking, airlines, transportation agencies, shipping services, distribution centers and other supply chain employment."

Students earn an associate in applied science degree and can qualify for a variety of jobs.
