Iowa's Applied Studies program

Here is a B.A.S. program from the University of Iowa.

The program there is an attempt to serve non-traditional students who already have a degree from a community college.

A student has to take 60 hours of course work in a variety of areas to get the degree from University of Iowa. It seems to emphasize the use of on-line, distance, and weekend courses.

At first glance, the Iowa program doesn't look so bad. I have a feeling the devil is in the details, so we will have to wait to see what kind of requirements our B.A.S. might include. Are we going to have to put up more non-traditional courses in order for this whole thing to work?
