Bachelor of Applied Science

Get Started on Your Degree Online Today!

Looking for a condensed, accelerated pathway to earn a bachelor’s degree? Our Bachelor of Applied Science can help.

Whether you are a community college student considering your next step or a working professional looking to move to the next rung on the career ladder, the online Bachelor of Applied Science degree prepares you with high-quality credentials that lead to good jobs requiring valuable technical skills.

This degree is intended to serve the needs of adults who have completed a technical associate degree program through a community college or the military and need additional education to advance their careers.

How does it work? It's simple!

Complete your applied associate degree through an accredited community college. Students may transfer up to 60 hours of community college course work to MSU (15 hours of general education core and 45 hours of technical credit).

What's next?

Take 30 hours of upper-level emphasis classes through MSU from up to three fields such as Communication, Criminology, History, Psychology, General Business, Healthcare Administration, Education or Kinesiology. Some classes are offered on campus and others are online, offering you the best of both worlds. An advisor will be assigned to guide you through choosing options that best meet your needs.

You will finish your 120 hour degree by completing other general education core requirements and major specific courses.

Students may begin taking courses at the start of any semester. We hope to hear from you soon!
