Is offered by the College of Extended Learning.
The Bachelor of Applied Studies (BAS) is designed for students with an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) or equivalent degree from an accredited institution. Building on prior education, the BAS provides students with broader experiences in technical career areas. The student population targeted for this program differs significantly from traditional degree programs at NMSU. Many students seeking admission to this program are employed or have been employed in an industry. Thus, the prime candidate for the BAS program is a mature student with real-world work experience. The BAS affords new opportunities to prospective students and helps minimize credit loss for students holding associate degrees in technical and applied areas when transferring to NMSU.
