Applied Professional Studies Major
B.S. in Applied Professional Studies
The applied professional studies major at the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences is available only to students enrolled in the Career Development Program. It offers a flexible program for adults who have gained significant professional experience and/or who have earned a large number of college credits toward their particular career goal. It is designed to allow students to select courses that best fit their career plans. Rather than study in one discipline or area of focus, students focus on applied practical studies that often draw on subjects in two or more divisions. The APS major may be offered to students in all locations subject to course availability. Acceptance into this major is determined by the appropriate division director.
The applied professional studies major is offered on NSU's main campus.
