A direct path to a bachelor’s degree

Not everyone takes the same path to earning their bachelor's degree. Some people get technical certification at a community college before they decide to pursue a bachelor's degree. Some people realize they need to go back to school to move ahead in their job, even though they are not the "typical" college age.

The Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences (B.A.A.S.) programs at the University of North Texas provide you a direct path to a fully accredited bachelor’s degree if you have:

  • Completed course work for technical, applied or military credit
  • A technical or applied degree from a community or technical college

Our B.A.A.S. degrees accept and build on these unique credits, combining them with course work intended to meet your individual or career goals.

You can complete your degree fully online via the Coursera platform; this can be preferable for students who live outside of North Texas, or who are unable to attend classes in-person due to full time work, family responsibilities, etc. Flexible evening, weekend and online courses make it easy for you to earn a B.A.A.S. degree while balancing full-time or part-time work and your personal life.
