Bachelor of Applied Science in Supervision and Management
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. This is an open-access program 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.
The BAS-SM 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.
The purpose of this program is to provide access to a quality baccalaureate degree curriculum that aligns program outcomes with local business and industry supervisory and management workforce needs. BAS-SM graduates will be prepared to assume additional responsibilities in their current workplace or qualify for a variety of positions in the local workforce community. Graduates will broaden their supervisory and management skills, learn to apply critical thinking skills in a business setting, improve communication skills and practice ethical and socially responsible behaviors that cultivate responsible business relationships.
The BAS-SM program will be offered initially at the Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch and then added to all PHSC campuses, as well as online, in subsequent terms. Any lower-level prerequisite, general education or technical courses for this program may be taken at any PHSC campus.
