Written by on March 30, 2021

The deadline to apply for Northwest College’s first four-year Bachelor’s degree is Thursday, April 1, with the first day of class set for Fall 2021.

Northwest College is ready to offer the first four-year program in its history. The Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.S.) Program in Professional Studies

Suited for those looking to build upon current skills or academic progress, this degree provides students with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to become successful managers and leaders in their area of specialization.

The curriculum focuses on “enhancing student skills in communication, management, marketing, and organizational leadership while providing the ability for students to apply those skills in practical ways that allow for career mobility.”

Designed for the working adult, the program allows students to attend classes in-person, over live video, online, or a combination of those options depending on their individual needs each week.

Students who pursue the B.A.S. will take 14 upper-level NWC classes that make up the program core. The entire program is offered in a short-term format that allows courses to be completed in eight weeks instead of the traditional 16 weeks.

Additionally, courses will be delivered in an adaptive hybrid model, meaning the 14 upper-level courses that make up the program core are offered simultaneously in both a traditional face-to-face format and an online format.

Students enrolled in the Professional Studies program can move seamlessly between the in-person and hybrid classes on a class-by-class basis based on what’s best for their situation.

Some of the classes included in the program include:

  • Business and Professional Communication
  • Technical Writing in the Professions
  • Human Resource Management
  • Introduction to Marketing
