Complete your Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) Degree

The Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) is a Bachelor’s completion degree program leading to supervisory and management roles within one’s technical fields and is available for students who have successfully completed an Associate of Applied Science degree.

This unique transfer-friendly degree-completion program was designed specifically for transfer students who have technical/professional (CTE) or XX associate’s degrees and that do not have readily available pathways to a bachelor’s degree in their career field. Our Bachelor’s completion degree is currently available in Business Administration and Emergency Medical Systems Administration (EMSA).

The BAS in BADM upper-level course work includes applied management, leadership development, finance, and human relations and will broaden the student’s knowledge of applied business practices. Generally, a Bachelor of Applied Science degree prepares graduates to enter the job market in entry-level or mid-level management positions. The BAS in BADM is not intended to prepare students for graduate school entry.

Completion of the Bachelor of Applied Science in Business Administration degree program consists of 45 credits that meet EOU’s General Education requirements, 60 credits of Business Administration course work from the College of Business, and 60 credits of technical/professional classes from the Associate of Applied Science degree. In addition to 60 credits of technical/professional credits, other credits earned in the Associate of Applied Science degree may be transferred to satisfy EOU’s institutional graduation requirements.
