Southwestern Assemblies of God University's (SAGU) School of Distance Education now offers a Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences (BAAS) in Occupational Leadership. The objective of the degree is to develop leadership and management skills necessary to serve in professional management roles in specific career fields.
SAGU Assistant Registrar Josh Brown says, "SAGU's new BAAS degree in Occupational Leadership is great because it equips students with management and leadership skills. It also optimizes transfer eligibility for students with significant vocational/technical credits, thus expediting the process of completing a 4-year accredited degree."
Adult learners' increased interest in returning to college to complete a bachelor's degree led SAGU to create the BAAS in Occupational Leadership. The degree serves to capitalize on previously earned vocational, technical or military credits by incorporating such earned hours into an accredited bachelor's degree. Of the 120 hours required for completion of the degree, 48 hours will focus on Career Studies incorporating up to 48 vocational credits and 21 hours of Leadership Studies.
Students must have at least 18 applicable vocational credit hours to apply for the program. SAGU, which is located in Waxahachie, Texas, may accept up to 48 vocational hours of credit with Registrar's approval.
