Bachelor of Applied Science in Applied Management
Peninsula College’s Bachelor of Applied Science in Applied Management Degree builds on an existing AAS, AAS-T, AA, or AS Degree, adding upper division coursework to complete a four-year degree. Applicants are accepted year round. The program can be completed in a two- or three-year track and online. The core courses sequence begins in the fall. Accepted students may take some courses winter or spring terms prior to the sequence.
The Bachelor’s degree is designed to meet the employment needs of the Olympic Peninsula and to provide program graduates with the knowledge and skills needed to move into management or supervisory positions with your current employer or create new employment opportunities and entrepreneurial ventures in a rapid changing global economy. Program classes are held weekday evenings and online to accommodate the schedule needs of working adults. Face-to-face classes meet on the main Peninsula College campus in Port Angeles.
The Bachelor’s curriculum includes a mix of required core management and integrated studies courses. During the program, each student also completes one internship which is developed by the student and internship instructor, in consultation with the employer.
