Accounting (A.A.S.)

The Accounting Program is designed to provide the student with a strong foundation in accounting, business and liberal arts.  Accounting is called “the language of business” as all businesses use accounting to run their enterprises and report their financial performance.

The accounting program offers a full array of accounting courses that provide the student with the skills and knowledge necessary to begin an entry-level career in accounting or to continue their education by pursuing a four-year accounting degree.   Upon completion of the program requirements, the Associate of Applied Science degree in Accounting is awarded.
