Coming this fall, people in the Sauk County area who want to earn a bachelor’s degree without leaving their communities will have another option.
The University of Wisconsin - Baraboo/Sauk County has received accreditation from Higher Learning Commission to offer a new bachelor of applied arts and sciences degree.
The 60-credit program offers internship, service learning and individual research project options, as well as credit for past experiences that students can show were equivalent to a university level course. The program — which was approved by the UW System Board of Regents nearly two years ago — will be offered at five other UW campuses, as well.
“The BAAS degree is very timely and relevant to today’s adult students,” said UW-BSC Dean Tom Pleger. “It meets the needs of local businesses and organizations for employees who are skilled in teamwork and communications, and it meets Wisconsin’s need for a more educated workforce.”
