The University of North Texas (UNT) has partnered with Coursera to bring the Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences (B.A.A.S.) undergraduate degree completion program fully online. The program courses are taught by UNT faculty and delivered on Coursera’s globally recognized and highly accessible online platform.

The Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences (BAAS) Data Analytics program at the University of North Texas provides you a direct path to a fully accredited bachelor’s degree if you have:

  • Completed course work for technical, applied, or military credit

  • A technical or applied degree from a community or technical college

This unique degree-completion program was developed to help students with diverse backgrounds, including those who have prior college or military credit, earn an accredited bachelor’s degree in the most streamlined way possible. An estimated 35% of jobs in the U.S. require at least a bachelor’s degree, yet 36 million Americans have attended some college, but never completed their degree. The B.A.A.S. is an attainable and affordable option for transfer students from community colleges and technical institutions, veterans or active-duty military personnel, and other non-traditional students with college credit to complete their bachelor’s degree. Up to 90 hours of the 120 hours required for the BAAS degree may be transferred from other approved institutions*. At $330 per credit hour, the B.A.A.S. has one of the most affordable tuition rates among comparable programs.

*At least 30 hours must be taken from UNT. The degree also requires that 36 of the 120 hours are advanced level (from courses with a 3000 or 4000 prefix) and that at least 24 of these are taken from UNT. BAAS 3020 and 3000 are PREREQUISITE Courses for BAAS 4100. It is required to take BAAS 4100 in your final semester. Academic Advisors will evaluate transfer credit for program completion.
