The School of Applied Studies is a professional school established in 1983 to provide educational programs in disciplines which respond to community and state needs. The school is comprised of five departments: allied health; education; criminal justice & legal studies; family and human services; and social work. Degree offerings range from the associate through masters degree depending upon the department. Some departments also offer one-year certificates.
