If you have an Associate of Applied Arts and Sciences (AAS) with a technical or vocational major from a Council for Higher Education (CHEA)-recognized organization, you can major in applied arts and sciences at ENMU. An applied arts and sciences major's time frame for degree completion varies with the individual student, but in general, the BAAS degree can be attained in two years.

This concentration will give you advanced knowledge in feed and nutrition, animal health, physiology and management. This emphasis combines both a rigorous scientific component and a very hands-on practical application. Note: This concentration is not available 100% online. The first year may be completed through online instruction, but the second year requires on-campus attendance.
