Academic Maps Already have an Associate’s degree in a trade or technical area? Want to pursue a bachelor’s degree that complements and incorporates your prior college work? Then our Bachelor of Applied Science degree is specially designed with you in mind. Our BAS builds on degree work you’ve already completed and complements it with a Liberal Arts education so you can attain your bachelor’s degree in the shortest amount of time possible.
There are four components to the degree. You need to:
- have an Associate of Applied Science degree from an accredited community or technical college.
- meet the University general education requirements worth 44 credits, some of which may be transferred in from his/her associate’s work.
- select a minor from offerings in the current UMPI catalogue.
- take at least 30 credits of your BAS coursework at UMPI, 12 of which must be in a selected minor and 18 of which must be upper level courses (300- 400). These 18 upper level credits taken at UMPI may be taken as part of the GEC, the minor, or as elective credit.
All candidates for the bachelor’s degree must complete the General Education Curriculum.
