Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS)

The Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree is an applied baccalaureate degree providing upper-division coursework in an applied field that may be offered at a community or technical college. These degrees build upon professional-technical associate degrees (AAS, AAS-T, AS-T) providing a clear pathway for students who may be place bound or have difficulty finding a transfer opportunity for their associate degree. The BAS degree also helps address an employers need to successfully recruit qualified applicants who have both job-specific technical skills as well as the skills learned through a baccalaureate program. In addition to serving the needs of employers, BAS programs are beneficial to employees already working in technical fields who wish to be promoted to higher level management or to specialized positions which may require a bachelor's degree.
