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, but in general, you can complete the BAAS in two years.
Students who complete the information systems and programming design concentration area will gain advanced knowledge in computer programming and the application of information systems for business.
Scholarships and Financial Assistance
We are committed to helping you finance your education. In addition to grants, loans, and scholarships offered University-wide, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences offers 29 scholarships for which you can apply. Additionally, many ENMU students work part-time jobs on campus to help finance their education.
Faculty and Advising
The applied arts and sciences faculty are committed to responsible academic advising. This means we help you schedule the right courses at the right time to help you take this next step in your professional career. Faculty members are specialists in their areas of advising and are current with requirements for admission into the programs they advise so you get the academic advice you need, when you need it.
Service and Mutual Interest Organizations
ENMU provides students the opportunity to use the skills you'll gain while working on your degree to hold leadership positions in ENMU organizations if you want to get more involved. At ENMU, you will be able to explore more than 50 student organizations that range from academic, cultural, multicultural, service, special interest and fraternities/sororities. If you see a need for an organization we don't have, you can even start your own.
When you receive a BAAS degree with a information systems and programming design concentration, you can look forward to an enhanced career in your field. This might include new opportunities in management, or even a new career in a related field. Graduates may pursue careers as:
- Computer programmer
- Web developer
- Computer support specialist
- Computer network manager
- Computer systems analyst
In addition to advisors and departments, Counseling and Career Services offers free job placement assistance to all students, so if you are looking for another position, we can help you find it.
