Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences

The Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences (BAAS) is designed for students who have completed a minimum of 18-30 credit hours of previous work in an occupational or technical field, and who want to utilize those hours toward completing a BA degree. Note that you must have 18 hours in a single field (you cannot mix and match fields). Examples of occupational course work could include military experience, as well as classes completed at technical schools and community colleges. These classes are in fields such as Cosmetology, Paralegal, Culinary Arts, Paramedic Training, and Dental Hygiene. We will combine these transfer hours with a professional component and electives to give students excellent administrative background for a variety of career options. The student will be able to use this degree in preparation for a graduate degree such as the MBA or MAA.
