Bachelor of Applied Science

The Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.S.) degree will provide students who have earned an Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree in any discipline a seamless transition to the online B.A.S. degree. This stackable education sequence enhances an individual's academic qualifications and increases potential career upward mobility. The degree design maximizes earned hours; a student with an A.A.S. degree must complete 66 hours to earn the B.A.S. degree (26 hours General Education/40 hours Degree Requirements). To maximize credentialing opportunities, a student in the B.A.S. program may earn the Certificate in Professional Leadership by completing the first 15 hours of the program.
