Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.S.)

The Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.S.) in Professional Studies is a fully accredited Bachelor's degree. Courses are delivered in an adaptive hybrid model, meaning the eight-week courses that make up the program core are offered in multiple formats:

  • Face-to-face in a classroom,
  • on video (Zoom) during regular class time, and

...and you can choose between these formats from week to week, based on other demands on your time that week.
