Find out more information about Applied Sciences & Professions

Applied professions, or vocational professions, refer to disciplines that focus on offering a particular set of skills for a specific type of occupation. These types of studies usually provide necessary practical knowledge and training for graduates to succeed in the chosen subject. As opposed to broader scientific studies, applied professions focus more on practical training rather than on theory and conceptual knowledge.

Applied sciences converts knowledge belonging to natural sciences and applies it into real world practice. Examples include engineering disciplines, based on knowledge from physics and mathematics, or medical disciplines based on the science of biology. Programmes in applied sciences usually offer highly specialised technical degrees. Disciplines included in the applied professions field include: design, fashion, emergency management, consumer science, food science, library science, museum science, and more.

Although initially part of the non-academic spectrum, applied professions are starting to be recognised in higher education settings, providing credit for prior learning as well as stand-alone degree programmes at undergraduate or post-graduate levels. Institutions such as polytechnics, universities, or community colleges typically provide applied professions education. Students of applied professions programmes will gain skills they can apply to solve problems and provide solutions to a variety of situations in their chosen occupation.

Careers in applied professions include highly specialised positions in highly diversified industries such as retail, tourism, information technology, funeral services, luxury products, as well as in the traditional crafts.
