Program information 

The Bachelor of Applied Studies (BAS) in Organizational Leadership combines advanced coursework in communication and leadership with courses in the arts, humanities, environmental affairs and the natural and social sciences. The program develops cultural, social and political literacy and builds the abilities to communicate effectively in writing and speech to exercise leadership skills.  

Eligibility requirements 

Students entering the Organizational Leadership major must have completed an Applied Associate degree from a technical college, have a cumulative grade-point average (GPA) of 2.0 in transferrable credits and be in good standing at the last college they attended. Students enrolled in the program will also be required to complete the General Education Program (GEP). Some major courses satisfy GEP requirements. 

Class structure

The BAS is an accelerated, hybrid program which allows for undergraduates to earn a bachelor's degree in half the time by utilizing a unique course-delivery model. Its accelerated courses take content from our traditional 16-week, three-credit classes and condenses it into a shorter, 8-week time frame along with the hybrid component of face-to-face and online classes.
