Curriculum and Requirements

The Bachelor of Applied Science in Supervision and Management (BAS-SM) program is designed to prepare graduates for supervisory and management roles in a variety of organizational settings. The BAS-SM program uses a 2+2 model that requires applicants to have completed an associate's degree or equivalent for entry into the program. The program is tailored to meet the needs of a diverse student population in the community, including flexible scheduling, face-to-face and online classes, and the ability to complete the program as either a part-time or full-time student.

This program conforms to all articulation agreements in accordance with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). This includes compliance with the Florida Department of Education and SACSCOC standards related to common course prerequisites, common course numbering and faculty credentialing. The BAS-SM degree program is designed with three concentrations: Organizational Administration, Public Safety/Public Service, and Health Care Management.
