Organizational Leadership, B.A.S

Dr. Josh Valk, Director- Bachelor of Applied Science Program


This program is available by distance delivery only. Entry into the program requires an application process. Students must apply for admission to UW first. Official transcripts from all institutions attended must be submitted to UW Admissions. Entry into this program requires an existing associate’s degree. Transcripts will not be analyzed prior to application.

All students pursuing a bachelor’s of applied science degree in Organizational Leadership are required to complete: a) University Studies Program (USP) requirements, b) 120 approved credits, 42 of which must be upper division (with 30 coming from UW), and c) courses within the program checklist. The program is designed to be completed in two years, but students may move at a pace that works for them. 

The University Studies Program (USP) ensures that each student’s program includes the elements essential to a lifetime of personal and professional growth: habits of mind, practices of active citizenship, and development of intellectual skills. The USP program requires students to develop skills that include the ability to express oneself in speech and writing; to locate, evaluate, and effectively use information; and to examine problems from quantitative, qualitative, and scientific perspectives. The USP requirements will be approximately 30 credit hours of your overall degree program.

All courses within the Bachelor of Applied Science must be completed with a grade of C or better. If you do not pass the course with a grade of C or better after three attempts you will be dismissed from your organizational leadership major.

Each student is assigned an advisor, who can be reached at (bas@uwyo.edu), and will be advised each semester. It is important that you work closely with your advisor to plan your course schedule.
