The University of North Texas (UNT) has partnered with Coursera to bring the Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences (B.A.A.S.) undergraduate degree completion program fully online. The program courses are taught by UNT faculty and delivered on Coursera’s globally recognized and highly accessible online platform.

About the B.A.A.S.

The B.A.A.S. will prepare graduates to tackle new challenges as leaders in business, non-profit organizations, and community engagement. The rigorous, multidisciplinary degree offers nine focused concentrations:

  • Administration
  • Consumer Behavior
  • Data Analytics
  • Hospitality
  • Information Technology 
  • Media Innovation
  • Organizational Supervision
  • Social Wellness and Community
  • Lean Distribution Processes

Is the B.A.A.S. right for you?

This unique degree-completion program was developed to help students with diverse backgrounds, including those who have prior college or military credit, earn an accredited bachelor’s degree in the most streamlined way possible. An estimated 35% of jobs in the U.S. require at least a bachelor’s degree, yet 36 million Americans have attended some college, but never completed their degree. The B.A.A.S. is an attainable and affordable option for transfer students from community colleges and technical institutions, veterans or active-duty military personnel, and other non-traditional students with college credit to complete their bachelor’s degree. Up to 84 hours of the 120 hours required for the BAAS degree may be transferred from other approved institutions*. At $330 per credit hour, the B.A.A.S. has one of the most affordable tuition rates among comparable programs.

*At least 30 hours must be taken from UNT. The degree also requires that 36 of the 120 hours are advanced level (from courses with a 3000 or 4000 prefix) and that at least 24 of these are taken from UNT. BAAS 3020 and 3000 are PREREQUISITE Courses for BAAS 4100. You must take BAAS 4100 in final semester. Academic Advisors will evaluate transfer credit for program completion.

Helping Students Succeed

Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences from UNT creates a unique degree pathway for community college students, veterans, international learners, and other non-traditional students.

“At UNT, we recognize that not everyone can take the traditional path to a bachelor’s degree and strive to help students of all backgrounds and experiences succeed,” said Dr. Adam Fein, Vice President of Digital Strategy and Innovation at UNT. “We’re excited to bring our successful B.A.A.S. program to Coursera and offer students around the world the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree and take advantage of the vast career opportunities this credential offers.”
