Bachelor of Applied Studies Degree
The Bachelor of Applied Studies (BAS) Degree, is designed to help those with applied associate degrees from a Wisconsin Technical College or from other regionally-accredited schools, in-state or out-of-state, complete a bachelor’s degree through UW-Green Bay’s Adult Degree Program. The degree features a major in Interdisciplinary Studies (IST), which offers the flexibility to focus your degree on the area that is most valuable to you and to employers. The IST major develops the skills that employers demand, such as: creativity, problem solving, critical thinking, communication, and decision making, while also providing students with a specific Area of Emphasis within the degree. Students select an Area of Emphasis that focuses on the professional area that interests them. This program is designed to provide adult students with the skills and credentials necessary to compete in a rapidly changing workplace.
The BAS helps students see the world in new ways, enhance earning power, and increase professional potential. It also will honor and build on the learning and education that has taken place previously in Wisconsin’s public technical colleges.
