Clark College is accepting applications for a new Bachelor of Applied Science in Applied Management program after receiving approval last week to begin offering the degree.
The first group is limited to 35 students. Courses will be offered through online and face-to-face evening formats. Classes begin in January.
The college received approval last week from its regional accrediting body, Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities. Earlier this year, the college received approval from the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges.
The Bachelor of Applied Science in Applied Management is a two-year, career-oriented degree that combines technical, academic and professional management courses. The program is geared for technically skilled graduates who already hold either an Associate in Applied Science or Associate in Applied Technology degree. It is a 90-credit program.
The program will provide students managerial knowledge and expertise to advance in their respective career fields, move up into management positions or operate their own business, said Patti Serrano, the program’s director.
