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 100% online. Students can enter the program fall, winter, spring, or summer. 

The Bachelor of Applied Management degree is designed to provide program graduates with the knowledge and skills needed to move into management or supervisory positions or create new employment opportunities and entrepreneurial ventures in a rapidly changing global economy. Some classes are held weekday evenings, and all classes are available online to accommodate the schedule needs of working adults. When available, 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 general studies courses. After completing the first year of the program (45 credits), each student also completes a five-credit internship which is developed by the student and employer partner.

    REQUIRED DEGREES & CLASSES

    Bachelor applicants must have completed one of the following:

    • AAS or AAS-T Degree (GPA of 2.0 or better)
    • AA or AS Degree (GPA of 2.0 or better)

    All Applicants must also have completed the following courses:
