Applied Bachelor Degrees

Applied baccalaureate degrees fill skill gaps in practical, market-driven fields where job requirements have advanced beyond the associate degree level. They add junior and senior levels to two-year professional/technical degrees that would otherwise not transfer and count toward bachelor's degrees at universities. The degrees vary from two-year technical education or a continuation of a professional/technical degree.

Applied baccalaureate degrees offer hands-on training in a career embedded within a four-year degree. Employers seek graduates because they have technical expertise combined with communication, computation, critical thinking and people-management skills.
