ASSOCIATE OF APPLIED SCIENCE


The A.A.S. degree program is designed to track directly into the B.A.S. degree. Students desiring to continue in their educational pursuits can do so at the baccalaureate level with no loss in credit between the A.A.S. and the B.A.S. degrees. The Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree is a 63-semester hour degree which requires 30 semester hours in a general education core and 33 semester hours from an approved major. The residency requirements on the A.A.S. degree count toward the B.A.S. residency of 31 hours. The A.A.S. residency is 18 hours. The five majors include applied science, business administration, human services, justice administration, and religion. Eighteen semester hours must be completed at Wayland.
