Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS)
Applied bachelor's degrees build on associate degrees and provide workplace skills in specific career areas. Compared to traditional four–year degrees at universities, applied bachelor's degrees incorporate more hands–on learning focused on a particular industry. (See Applied Baccaulareate Degrees at Washington's Community and Technical Colleges.)
