Bachelor of Applied Science with a major in Administrative Management
The Bachelor of Applied Science in Administrative Management is designed for non-traditional or adult students with previous college credit who are seeking to improve their knowledge base for advancement in the workplace. This program provides career advancement opportunities for individuals employed (or seeking employment) in a wide variety of office settings and other business and corporate environments.
Like all B.A.S. programs, the Administrative Management major builds upon the technical education acquired through an associate degree in a career field. For the Administrative Management major, the associate degree or career courses should be in an office- or business-related field, such as office administration, secretarial studies, merchandising, paralegal studies, or business data processing. We offer concentrations in Organizational Leadership, Applied Criminal Justice, and Homeland Security/Emergency Management in the Administrative Management major.
In order to be eligible for the BAS program, students must meet the following requirements:
- Student must have a minimum overall GPA of 2.0 at time of application
- The student must satisfy one of the three career course requirements prior to being admitted to BAS program:
Must have an AAS or AAT (Career Associate Degree) from a regionally accredited college or university with 38 transferrable technical or career credit hours
Must have at least 38 semester credit hours of professional/technical courses from a regionally accredited college or university with a grade of C or higher and 21 of these 38 hours must be in one professional/technical area. If the student has 30- 37 professional/technical courses, he/she will need to take additional courses to satisfy the 38-hour requirement; the student’s advisor will recommend appropriate courses.
Must have at least 12 semester credit hours of military courses from the U.S. Military. If the student has less than the 38 transferrable technical/career/military courses, he/she will need to take additional courses to satisfy the 38-hour requirement; these courses can be satisfied from a combination of additional technical or career courses, military credit and/or lower-division academic credit. The student’s advisor will recommend appropriate courses. Please note that students cannot use lower-division academic courses to satisfy both the block credit (38 hours) and core curriculum (Areas A-F) requirements. Therefore, students may need to take additional courses to satisfy their core curriculum requirements.
