The Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.S.) major serves all Associate in Science (A.S.) graduates who desire a Bachelor’s degree for career or personal advancement. The major is low-cost, well-defined, and flexible; the program is specifically designed to accommodate certain non-traditional students – those that have earned an A.S. degree and wish to pursue a Bachelor’s degree. Many of these students are working professionals, desiring to increase their marketability.
The B.A.S. major builds upon the technical or professional skills acquired in the A.S. to develop competencies in management and communication, with emphasis on developing skills in critical thinking, problem solving and decision making. The curriculum consists of core courses in ethics, management and communication, and a concentration chosen by the student. Areas of specializations, or tracks, that are available in the B.A.S. major include:
- Criminal Justice
- Health Services Administration
- Information Technology
- Legal Studies
- Software Development
