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 can be attained in two years.

The psychology/sociology concentration was primarily developed for individuals in health related fields seeking a bridge to graduate studies. However, if you are involved with other occupational areas, you will also benefit from this broad range of coursework addressing human behavior and social interaction.

Note: Although this program is 100% online, some of the social work courses may be delivered online only through live Mediasite video; for those courses, there is an expectation that you will participate at the scheduled time.
