Bachelor's Degree in Management

What is the Bachelor's Degree in Management Program?

The Bachelor of Applied Science in Applied Management (BAS) program at Peninsula College is designed to enable applicants with AAS, AAS-T, AA, and AS degrees to combine their lower-division technical or transfer preparation, regardless of the discipline, with upper-division credits in business management, resulting in a practical, application-oriented, four-year degree. The Peninsula College Bachelor degree is designed with academic rigor enabling graduates to apply directly to Master of Business Administration (MBA) and other graduate programs.

Two attendance options are now available:

  1. EVENING classes at Peninsula College in Port Angeles, Washington, with a two or three year track. The core course sequence begins in the fall, but candidates can enter the program on a part time basis in the Winter and Spring quarters. Applications are accepted and reviewed year round. The EVENING Program was developed to meet the employment needs of the Olympic Peninsula and to prepare graduates for entry-level management positions and career advancement in the wide range of fields found on the Peninsula and elsewhere. All in-class instruction occurs on Peninsula College's Port Angeles campus, with a portion of the course work completed online.
  2. The ONLINE Degree Program offers the same courses and schedule as the evening classes, but using an online format. No face to face classes are required for this option

    The ONLINE Program was developed to offer the successful BAS program to a wider audience - the curriculum and internship requirements are the same as the evening program. Applications and all course work are completed exclusively online.

Internship: A Signature Feature

A special feature of the Bachelor program is its required internship. Students may participate in a single-site work experience, or choose to gain experience and exposure in two different work settings. Internships may be in the private, public and/or tribal sectors. Students work in partnership with the internship instructor to develop their internship experience.

Bachelor program graduates can anticipate opportunities in management positions across a wide range of industries.
