The B.A.S. in Applied Science program within the New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences combines the technical concentration knowledge earned in the student's Associate of Applied Science degree with a broader education gained at the bachelor's level of education meeting the specific requirements of a degree earned from Arizona State University.
For students graduating from an approved AAS program (i.e., Glendale Community College with the AAS in Biotechnology), the BAS is used to add a Cell and Molecular Biology concentration focusing on advanced coursework in these and related scientific fields, as well as practical research experience. This culminates in the Cell and Molecular Biology Research (CaMBR) Bachelor of Applied Science degree.
Students applying to this program must have completed an Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree. Not available for freshmen.
CaMBR students, in particular, will find themselves prepared for biotechnical careers in industry and government, including biomedical laboratories. They also will have completed the coursework required for entry into a number of related Master’s Degree programs at ASU and elsewhere.
