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) 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). 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.
