The mission of the American College of Applied Science is to provide our graduate, undergraduate and professional development program students around the world with the opportunity to begin, enhance or change their professional careers in a diverse global society by empowering them with leadership, critical thinking and practical skills that will allow them to affect positive change for society, all living creatures, and the environment that sustains us all.
We accomplish this by providing high quality and technologically advanced blended learning programs through our Virtual Campus classrooms, academic residency labs, real-world practicum and academic research opportunities while subscribing to humane scientific principles of investigation that continue to be our most trusted method of inquiry. Our faculty members are committed professionals who strive to develop the very best practitioners who can effect positive change in the communities in which they reside.
The American College of Applied Science is currently the only U.S. based
institution of higher learning to offer graduate and undergraduate degree
programs, and non-degree professional development diploma programs, in
companion animal science and behavior based upon a foundation of applied
behavior analysis and a working relationship with the veterinary community.
I am pursuing the Professional Development Diploma in Canine Behavior Analysis & Counseling
and I absolutely love the program! The professors are knowledgeable and the course content
is challenging and adequately prepares you for work in this field. I feel fortunate to have
found ACAS!” – Maureen Schwarz, PD-CBAC
