Bachelor of Arts (BA): Graduate and professional schools typically require a four-year BA or BS for admission. The curriculum of a traditional BA degree is centered on providing a well-rounded, liberal arts education. Students pursuing a BA are not required to have an associate degree.
Bachelor of Science (BS): BS programs normally require a student to take the majority of their courses (usually 1/2 or 3/4) in the sciences, namely life sciences, physical sciences, or the mathematical sciences. Graduate and professional schools typically require a four-year BS or BA for admission. Students pursuing a BS are not required to have an associate degree.
Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS): An undergraduate academic degree awarded for a course or program in a technical area with substantial applied content that a student can partially acquire by completion of another instructional program or experience in a technical field. A BAS program can be designed to incorporate applied content through various pathways, including collaboration with a community or technical college with block transfer of credits, transfer of credits on a course-by-course basis, or credits for experiential learning. Students pursuing a BAS degree must have an associate degree (some programs require a specific associate degree).
Bachelor of Arts or Science in Interdisciplinary Studies (BAIS/BSIS): An undergraduate academic degree designed to broaden your background through requirements that can more readily be tailored to your individual needs and interests. Students may choose this degree plan if they plan to enter an occupation that requires a broad general education, if they are seeking career advancement or personal intellectual enrichment or if they are considering a pre-professional plan.
90/30 Bachelor of Arts of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies (BAIS/BSIS 90/30): Similar to the BAIS/BSIS degree program; however, students are able to transfer up to 90* credit hours from other accredited colleges/universities. (Standard for all other degree types is 64 hours.) Students are left with only 30 credit hours to complete at NAU. *Transferred credits must meet NAU's program requirements.
