AU Online
Credits for Degree: 120 semester credits
Standard Mode of Instruction: Online
Standard time to completion: 36 months

Program Overview

This Applied Studies major gives students who have earned an associate’s degree in a technical area the forum to build upon these skills by developing a broader contextual understanding of their profession while advancing their liberal learning perspective. It is a particularly good choice for individuals currently employed in a technical field but restricted in their ability to grow professionally due to their limited liberal learning skills. Students with an Applied Studies major are encouraged to integrate their career or technical preparation into studies that expand their skills in written and oral communication, consideration of social and ethical issues, and ability to problem solve. Applied Studies students critically examine their professional field and personal learning, moving toward a more systems-thinking approach. Students completing this degree will have a liberal education perspective that will enhance and build upon their employable skills from their careers and technical learning experiences.
