We are now enrolling for our new Bachelor of Applied Arts & Sciences (BAAS) degree completion program! Want to learn more about it? Come to our BAAS Information Session on Tuesday, June 11, at 6:30 pm, in the Rodem's Room on campus.
The BAAS is a bachelor’s degree that can be earned right here at UW-Baraboo/Sauk County, in collaboration with UW-La Crosse. The degree is conferred by the UW Colleges, and classes are taught by faculty from both UW-BSC and UW-La Crosse.
Focus on Skills
The BAAS degree includes a strong component of community involvement and practical experience, and is heavily weighted toward the skills that employers have told us they want:
- Reading, writing, and math skills
- The ability to work well in teams
- The ability to assimilate information and solve complex problems
- Awareness of global issues and cultures
The BAAS degree has several innovative features:
- A professional experience component that includes internships and service-learning
- A year-long senior capstone seminar allowing you to focus on an individualized research project
- Credit for prior learning, if you can show that you have knowledge equivalent to a university-level course required for the BAAS degree
- Flexible course delivery, including online classes, accelerated short-course formats, and evening or weekend courses
To enroll in the BAAS program, you must have a UW-BSC Associate of Arts & Science degree, or an equivalent liberal arts associate's degree. If you would like to find out if the BAAS is right for you, please contact an advisor in the Office of Student Affairs.
