Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences

The Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences (BAAS) programs at the University of North Texas provide you a direct path to a fully accredited bachelor’s degree if you have:

  • Completed course work for technical, applied or military credit
  • A technical or applied degree from a community or technical college

Our BAAS degrees accept and build on these unique credits, combining them with course work intended to meet your individual or career goals.

Flexible evening, weekend and online courses make it easy for you to earn a BAAS degree while balancing full-time or part-time work and your personal life.

Who benefits from a BAAS degree?

Students seeking admission to one of our BAAS programs typically have some real-world work experience. They also include:

  • Active-duty military or veterans seeking college credit for courses taken as part of their training in the service
  • Transfer students wanting credit for workforce or technical courses taken at a community or technical college
  • Students interested in developing multiple areas of expertise
  • Students who’ve accumulated a significant number of credit hours

What career opportunities are available?

Career opportunities for BAAS students vary as much as their paths to earning the degree. Some students complete the degree for career advancement. Others want to change career paths altogether or ultimately plan to 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.

UNT’s Career Center can provide advice about future employment opportunities in a particular area.

Advisors are important in any degree program, but they are critical to the B.A.A.S. degree program because each student has their own custom, multidisciplinary degree plan. B.A.A.S. advisors know the degree requirements, the number and types of credits that can be transferred from other institutions or majors, and how many courses you still need to graduate.

Our advisors will meet you where you are… Appointments can be made for meeting in Denton, via Skype, by telephone, or at one of our locations in Collin County. Go to https://appointments.unt.edu to make your advising appointment today!
