Degree Plans and More

Program Overview

 
The Bachelor of Applied Science program is intended to provide students with the necessary skills and knowledge to assume management and leadership roles in industry, enhance current employment, or pursue graduate study. Maximum utilization is made of course credits earned in an Associate of Applied Science degree program; up to seventy-five (75) hours of coursework may be applied from transfer credit.
 
Completion of the Bachelor of Applied Science degree consists of 45 hours of upper-level coursework, in addition to any required lower-level degree requirements. Classes are offered either completely online (via course management technology), hybrid (featuring specific class meetings and course management technology), or web-enhanced (featuring a traditional class meeting schedule and course management technology).
