The BAS program is a transfer pathway specifically for students who have earned a community college AAS degree. The goal of the program is to provide students with management, leadership, critical thinking and communication skills along with significant work in a professional specialization. Students must complete an Associate of Applied Science degree to be eligible for this program. AA and AS students are not eligible for this program.
From the GPS navigation system that maps a destination within seconds to the text you send on your cell phone, inventions from applied science abound and have permanently changed society. Applied science is basically putting scientific knowledge to practical use. Graduates of associate degree programs in applied science find jobs as technicians, drafters and engineers. They also land jobs in health care as therapists and technicians.
This program allows students who have earned an Associate of Applied Science from a regionally accredited institution to transfer 60 or 75 credit hours toward a Bachelor of Applied Science at ASU. Students may opt to complete additional general studies course work at a community college to be eligible to transfer up to 75 credits toward the BAS. The BAS curriculum builds on the general education content of the AAS and includes four blocks of credits: general studies, core, concentration and assignable credits. The ASU general studies requirements will be completed through upper-division course work. The BAS core curriculum includes content in management and organization, professional communication, statistical processes and computer competency. The concentration has a 20-semester hour minimum of specialization courses. The assignable credits (six semester hours) are traditional electives selected in consultation with an advisor to enhance the curriculum. Assignable credit also can be used to strengthen math and science capabilities or computer skills. I want to find another Bachelor Course Students in the BAS program can select one of six specialty concentrations shown below. Students who choose to create their own specialty should select the courses in conjunction with an advisor. aviation management technology electronic and energy systems graphic information technology Internet and Web development manufacturing technology and management operations management technology Career Opportunities The wide range of concentrations provides graduates diverse career opportunities. Bachelor's degree program course work gives the graduate greater skills to be successful as a professional working in a technical area.
