Accounting

Accounting is the 'language of business' and today's accountants exhibit a broad range of knowledge about all business. Accounting is a career path and not just a job. The skills learned in accounting can apply to any career choice. Accountants are financial planners, business managers, fraud investigators, and chief executive officers. An accounting degree can launch you into more business opportunities than other business-related degrees.  

The Associate of Science in Accounting prepares students for general college accounting while providing the basic courses for transfer to four-year colleges and universities. Accounting principles, accounting practice, and general education courses offered in the program serve the needs of transfer students in Accounting and other areas of Business Administration.
