Bachelor Program Descriptions 

 Information Technology- Cyber Security, B.A.A.S 

The purpose of the Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences (B.A.A.S.) is to offer students with formal training in a vocational - technical studies area the opportunity to obtain a baccalaureate degree without the significant loss of credits that normally occurs in pursuing a traditional degree. This program is especially appropriate for graduates of an Associate of Applied Science program. The degree is designed to afford both academic and professional depth to individuals who possess recognized competence in an occupational or technical field. It is designed to offer flexibility that will permit tailoring the program to the student's background and educational objectives. 

Candidates for the B.A.A.S. degree must complete a minimum of 36 hours in residence. 

Students who choose the business emphasis of the B.A.A.S. degree must meet the same lower -division (field of study) course requirements as students pursing the B.B.A. degree.

Master Program Descriptions

Counseling and Guidance, M.A. 

The Master of Arts degree (M.A.) in Counseling & Guidance requires thirty-six hours of counseling coursework and includes two tracks: School Counseling and Mental Health Counseling. The School Counseling track is designed specifically for students wishing to work in the public school setting; whereas the Mental Health Counseling track prepares students for employment in a wide variety of mental health and human services settings. Both 36-hour tracks allow for the addition of 12 hours of counseling coursework, thus providing students with the 48 hours of counseling coursework needed to meet the academic requirements for Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Texas. 

 

Educational Administration, M.S. 

The Educational Administration degree program is designed to meet the principal ship certification requirements in the state of Texas. In addition, a superintendence program of 15 semester credit hours is available for practicing K- 

12 school administrators. It is estimated that the average length of time, which will be required to complete this Masters degree, will be 2 years. Some of the coursework will be offered online in a combination of face to face and hybrid coursework. We have found that this combination affords students the greatest amount of freedom and flexibility while also including face-to-face support, which results in highly skilled graduates.
