Hello, I recently came across an old-time friend of mine that holds a BAS degree. Can anyone tell please explain what the difference is between a BA/BS and a BAS degree? Are BAS degrees marketable like BA/BS degrees? Or, are BAS degrees better or worse than their BA/BS counterparts? I'm quite curious since you really don't hear alot about BAS programs being offered by schools out there. From what I have gathered so far, a pre-requisite for a BAS is a AAS. Here are some programs I've come across: http://www.continuetolearn.uiowa.edu/CCP/bas/ http://www.west.asu.edu/ias/bas/ http://www.uma.edu/catalog-bappliedscience.html http://regionalcampuses.ucf.edu/programbas.htm Thanks kindly in advance!
