This includes compliance with the Florida Department of Education and SACSCOC standards related to common course prerequisites, common course numbering and faculty credentialing. The BAS-SM degree program is designed with five concentrations: Organizational Administration, Public Safety/Public Service, Cybersecurity Management, Health Care Management, Aviation Administration.
