The Associate of Arts degree in Accounting is primarily designed for vocational 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. Students should consult the Transfer Center or the Counseling Office for major preparation and general education requirements of the particular transfer institution of their choice.
