Created specifically for students who have earned an AAS, the Applied Science program offers students a tailored educational and developmental experience to pursue their career goals in business, communication, and criminal justice, among many other disciplines.
The School of Humanities, Arts and Cultural Studies offers a BAS degree in the New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences at ASU's West campus.
This program, for students who have already earned an AAS degree, allows students to apply the technical knowledge gained from their associate degree and significantly broaden their education.
The program offers unique areas of concentration tailored to students' individual interests and career goals. These include but are not limited to business, communication, criminal justice, teaching, environmental issues, languages and cultures, and social sciences.
Students who have earned an Associate of Applied Science from an accredited institution may transfer 60 credit hours toward the Bachelor of Applied Science degree. Students who have earned an Associate of Applied Science degree from a regionally accredited Arizona community college may be eligible to transfer up to 75 credits toward the Bachelor of Applied Science degree. The program also includes a capstone project.
