Associate of Applied Science Degree

The AAS degree is most commonly used to prepare students for employment in a specific career upon graduation. Some Arizona universities have responded to the needs in particular technical fields by creating two-plus-two programs enabling a student with an AAS degree to transfer to a university without loss of credit. These degree programs may require lower-division general education courses in the junior and senior years. See an academic advisor for information about the Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degrees at Arizona public universities. Cochise College has the following Associate of Applied Science degrees:
