NEW ALBANY, Ind. (Jan. 13, 2014) – IU Southeast now offers a Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.S.), a degree-completion program for students with an Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree.
The B.A.S. program allows students to progress toward graduation, building on credits earned from an A.A.S. degree. The B.A.S. degree helps students grow in their careers or change careers after graduation.
In addition to a seamless transition of credits, the B.A.S. program provides flexibility by allowing students to take classes on campus, online, or a mix of both. Courses in the B.A.S. program are taught in collaboration with faculty members from IU Southeast, IU East, IU Kokomo, IU Northwest and IU South Bend.
Students in the B.A.S. program are required to complete 120 credit hours, and may transfer all credit hours earned with an A.A.S. degree—typically 60-64 hours—saving students time and money. The B.A.S. degree is composed of the following course categories.
- General education courses
- Applied science courses
- A.S. core courses
- A.S. track courses
Upon entering the B.A.S. program, students must choose between two tracks: the health care management track and the individualized track, a flexible option that allows students to choose courses based on their career goals and interests.
Potential B.A.S. degree students are required to first apply to IU Southeast. To apply, click here.
