The B.S. in Professional Studies with a concentration in Technical Leadership and Administration is a degree completion program designed for working adults who have earned 60 or more college credits. Most courses are offered on the Shippensburg campus although some of the core courses may be available at other locations, such as HACC-Gettysburg, in the evenings; and some courses may be online.

The program's core courses will provide the opportunity to explore how a liberal arts education can enhance career opportunities. These courses will help students understand the structure of organizations, the behavior of individuals within organizations, and how to resolve conflict in order for organizations to function efficiently. The professional courses will allow students to explore communications and management concepts and issues critical to the effective administration of work units and organizations. The electives give students the opportunity to enhance their educational experience, and the internship or research project at the end of the program promotes the integration of theory and practice.

Regularly admitted students with an interest in this major must meet the degree completion admission requirements, which include an Associates' Degree and five years of work experience.
