B.A.S. Application Development

We are now accepting applications for fall 2019, please apply here.

North’s new evening Application Development Bachelor of Applied Science (AD B.A.S.) began fall quarter 2014. You can be a part of this exciting, high demand field! Classes are small within a cohort setting with lots of opportunity for individual attention.

The AD B.A.S. provides an opportunity for you — who may already have an IT-related associate degree or who may want to focus on computer programming and software/application development — to earn a Bachelor’s Degree of Applied Science by leveraging the strong IT-related programs at North, Central and South Seattle Colleges.

When compared to traditional bachelor’s programs, bachelor of applied science degrees more heavily incorporate hands-on learning, focused on a particular industry or discipline. Added bonuses are emphasis on internship opportunities, credit for prior learning and workplace experience. You can also complete the degree program in six quarters, and there are no required summer classes.

Applications are currently being accepted for fall 2019.

Please email Michelle Melero for more information at ADBAS-info@seattlecolleges.edu or leave a message at (206) 934-7025.

Faculty contact for the program is John Stager, john.stager@seattlecolleges.edu, (206) 934-7027.

What graduates are saying about AD at NSC

  Darcey Tatum
  Software Developer



"Being a student of the Application Development program at NSC gave me a fundamental understanding of programming, algorithms, and how to come up with creative solutions for complex problems. The AD program at NSC allowed me to get a quality internship, and get hired by the same company after my internship was complete.  The instructors and staff were great in helping guide me through changing careers, and equipping me with the fundamental knowledge of what it takes to make it in the software industry." - Darcey Tatum, NSC Application Development Grad
