Professional Development


Professional Development is the multidisciplinary component of the BAAS degree program. It consists of two or three separate multidisciplinary concentrations, developed in collaboration between the student, the BAAS program advisors, and the appropriate disciplinary units. In some cases, part of the Professional Development component may consist of additional technical or occupationally-specific coursework taken from a community college, the military or another four-year institution.

Students are best served by selecting professional development concentrations which work together to satisfy future career needs or educational objectives. The disciplines selected for your Professional Development concentrations should either complement one another or provide necessary career skills. If you haven’t started already, it is a good idea to start thinking NOW about what you plan to do after you graduate.
