The B.A.S. student, however, may take two years, three years, or longer to complete degree requirements - whatever best fits your goals and objectives.
At The W the classes are small, but the opportunities are BIG. Our size and culture offer a personalized learning experience. Low student-to-faculty ratio fosters a close student/faculty relationship which allows us to actively engage our students and make learning relate to real world experiences.
