The Accounting Program is designed to provide the student with a strong preparation in accounting and business. The Accounting Program prepares students for entry-level positions in the accounting fields. In addition, a large percentage of students choose to continue their education at four- year colleges in order to become certified public accountants (CPA). CPA’s can start practices or work in public, private, not- for- profit or government accounting. Upon completion of the Accounting Program requirements, the Associates of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree is awarded.
