Bachelor of Applied Science Degrees

BAS General Information

Applied bachelor’s degrees fill skill gaps in practical, market-driven fields where job requirements have advanced beyond the associate degree level. They add junior and senior courses to two-year professional-technical (vocational) degrees that would otherwise not transfer to universities. Students build upon their already valuable two-year degrees to land higher-paying jobs and promotions, while employers get the rounded skill sets they seek in bachelor’s degrees.

Bachelor of Applied Science - Forest Resource Management (BAS-FRM)
Bachelor of Applied Science - Organizational Management (BAS-OM)
Bachelor of Applied Science - Teacher Education Elementary Education K-8 - English Language Learners Endorsement (BAST).
