Our career and technical education BAAS concentration is designed to prepare you as a career and technical education instructor and trainers to teach in secondary schools, community and technical colleges, trade and technical institutes, and in business and industry settings. The CTE program is 100% online.

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 apply the education experience you already have toward your bachelor’s degree. An applied arts and sciences major's time frame for degree completion varies with the individual student, but you can realistically expect to complete your BAAS degree in two years. Our Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences (BAAS) program gives you credit for your past academic experience.

Note: This concentration does not meet the requirements for New Mexico Secondary 7-12 Vocational Licensure.
