Why a Bachelor's Degree from CBC?
Whether you are looking to begin your college education or have decided to return
to school to complete your degree, consider enrolling in one of CBC's seven Bachelor
of Applied Science (BAS) degree programs or a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN-BSN)
What is a BAS Degree?
The BAS degree is a four-year degree, specifically designed to build on professional-technical associate degrees, such as Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degrees. BAS degrees include core courses from the related AAS degree, general education courses and upper division (300 and 400 level) courses.
BAS degrees are developed based on the demand from local employers. BAS degrees incorporate
more applied, hands-on learning than a traditional bachelor’s degree, allowing students
to advance their practical skills and knowledge that today’s employers demand and
become competitive in the job market. Graduates with a BAS degree may apply to related
master's degree programs.
