Applied Arts and Sciences

Program Description

Are you...

  • An accomplished professional in your career field who cannot advance until you have a degree?
  • A full-time employee who wants to earn a bachelor's degree but does not think there is enough time in a day?
  • An adult who wishes to return to college and finish that degree that you began a long time ago?

If any of these apply to you, then the BAAS degree could connect what you know and where you want to go! The BAAS degree is a four-year baccalaureate degree that is designed for working adults and students who have earned many college credits.

The Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences program is most appealing to students who have earned academic credit hours and are seeking a flexible degree plan to complete their bachelor's degree.
