Core Curriculum for the Associate of Applied Science Degree

The Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree provides the educational background necessary for a chosen career field or profession and for transfer into career oriented Bachelorís degree programs. While some four-year colleges offer the bachelor of applied science degree, many do not. Therefore, students completing the AAS degree who have decided to pursue a higher degree need to ensure their selected four-year college offers the Bachelor of Applied Science or similar degree in their concentration degree prior to enrolling.

Please note that many colleges who do not offer the AAS degree may accept core curriculum course work on a course-by-course evaluation for transfer.
