ACCOUNTING

The Associate of Arts degree in Accounting is primarily designed for career and technical education and workforce training/ development. The curriculum is not aligned with course requirements for transfer to a specific major at a four-year college or university. This program is designed to prepare the student for entry into the business community in such entry-level positions as bookkeeper, accounting clerk, or assistant auditor. Skills required for maintaining records, controlling finances, and preparing financial reports are taught. Students interested in transferring to a four-year college or university with a major in Accountancy or Business Administration (Accounting-related option) may consider the Associate of Arts degree in Business Administration.
