The fastest, most affordable way to complete your bachelor’s degree online from a top 9 research school in Texas while leveraging your previous college or military credits.
The Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences program offered by Coursera in partnership with University of North Texas accepts and builds on these unique credits, combining them with course work in eight distinct concentrations so you can meet your individual or career goals.
The degree is designed to help transfer students from community colleges and technical institutions, non-traditional students with college credit, and veterans or active-duty military personnel finish their bachelor’s degree faster. The B.A.A.S. degree does this by accepting many types of credits that other degree programs won’t accept.
What makes this degree unique?
- No need to start over. Build a bridge by transferring your educational experience towards your degree. Named one of America’s 100 Best College Buys® for 24 consecutive years, UNT pairs each applicant with an advisor to create a customized degree plan focusing on the “missing pieces” required to complete the degree.
Built for you. B.A.A.S. students receive high-touch support and career services as applicants and enrolled students. With eight concentrations in administration, organizational supervision, social wellness and community, hospitality, media innovation, consumer behavior, data analytics, and information technology, you can customize your coursework to create a degree path that’s right for you and your career.
- Attainable and flexible. Receive the same high-quality instruction as on-campus students and earn the same degree while learning when and where it works best for you.
- Commitment to excellence. Founded 130 years ago, UNT is a well-established research institution that ranks in the top 100 nationally for social mobility. UNT is also a majority-minority university, 42 percent of on-campus students at UNT are first-generation students, and the school ranks in the top 50 nationally for diversity.
