The word ‘applied’ in Applied Sciences & Professions refers to how academic and professional skills are used for - or applied towards - jobs and professions.  This is what people like to call ‘vocational’ education – giving you specific training for a specific kind of job. So, when you enroll in a Bachelor’s or Master’s in Applied Sciences & Professions, you’re meant to decide what career you want to be prepared or trained for.

When you select a specific science or profession that you wish to work in, you will then be set up in the courses that provide the skills transferable to that specific field. Think of what kinds of professions require strong training: forensic scientists, librarians, property managers, social workers, nurses, etc. You can’t learn those skills by yourself! So, when you get a degree for these kinds of careers, you get direct, hands-on to practice the skills that people actually use for them.Applied Sciences & Professions doesn’t stand alone, as a field by itself. So, you must select a ‘profession’ or ‘science’ that you want to apply your knowledge toward (after all, you can’t have training without knowing what you’re being trained for, right?).
