Bachelor Program Descriptions

 Bachelor of Applied Science, B.A.S.

      The Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.S.) is an inverted degree program which allows individuals to apply a vocational/technical field (i.e., courses, training, or work experience) as credit toward an applied associate's degree and, in turn, to apply the associate's degree toward a B.A.S. degree. Students in this degree program desire to enhance their knowledge, analytical abilities and critical thinking skills for upward mobility in their field. The B.A.S. exists to pro- vide a seamless transition from technical fields to an appropriate baccalaureate program while enhancing the liberal arts component of the student's education.

The B.A.S. degree is designed for individuals who have completed occupational/technical degrees and certificates at community, vocational, and technical colleges and schools; individuals who have completed occupational/vocational training in U. S. Armed Services Schools, the workplace, and career training centers; occupational and technical faculty at regional and local public schools; and individuals who have received several years of on-the-job training.

The Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.S.) degree is a minimum 124-semester hour pro- gram.  A minimum of 36 semester hours must be in upper-level (junior/senior level) credit. Major fields of study included in the degree have specific upper-level requirements.  The student may select from seven majors which combine non-traditional credit with a traditional liberal arts background.  Majors include applied science, business administration, human services, justice administration, management, early child development, and career and technology education. Each major consists of 36 semester hours, of which 18 must be in upper-level cred- it.  The degree also requires a 24-semester hour professional development block designed to provide academic depth or breadth to the major and to provide substantive developmental knowledge for the student's career or personal goals. The degree also includes a 12-semester hour experiential professional development block designed to provide practical experience as an integral part of the student's career development.  Finally, the degree includes electives to complete the 124-semester hour requirement.
