An estimated 35% of jobs in the U.S. require at least a bachelor’s degree, yet 36 million Americans have attended some college, but never completed their degree. The B.A.A.S. is an attainable and affordable option for transfer students from community colleges and technical institutions, veterans or active-duty military personnel, and other non-traditional students with college credit to complete their bachelor’s degree.
This degree program was designed with flexibility in mind, offering the option to complete courses in person at UNT locations in Frisco and Denton, online, or as a mixture of in-person and online classes.
Additionally, UNT has partnered with Coursera to bring the Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences (B.A.A.S.) undergraduate degree completion program fully online. The program courses are taught by UNT faculty and delivered on Coursera’s globally recognized and highly accessible online platform.
The B.A.A.S. will prepare graduates to tackle new challenges as leaders in business, non-profit organizations, and community engagement. In this rigorous, multidisciplinary degree, students choose 2-3 disciplines to spotlight within their degree plan. Common concentrations include:
Graduates of the Applied Arts and Sciences program use their degrees to break through promotional barriers in existing jobs or to change careers altogether. Alumni of the program have pursued careers in a variety of areas including business, industry, and public service. Academic Advisors assist students with developing a degree plan that addresses their career objectives.
Career opportunities for BAAS students vary as much as their paths to earning the degree. Some students complete the degree for career advancement, while others want to change career paths altogether or attend graduate school. Whatever the motivation, BAAS students graduate with an array of skills that equip them to compete in today’s ever-changing workplace.
BAAS graduates are found in a variety of career fields. Many work in business, state and local government, nonprofit agencies or a wide range of fields directly associated with the specialization they pursued at a community or technical college or while in the military.
