The Accounting program prepares you for a career in the public, private, governmental and not-for-profit sectors. Accountants specialize in financial and managerial accounting, auditing, tax, financial analysis and budgeting. Students have three options including the A.S. and A.A.S degrees and Certificate.

The A.S. degree is for transfer to an accounting program at a four year college or university. With additional education and work experience, you will find many employment opportunities including Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Certified Internal Auditor (CIA), and Certified Management Accountant (CMA), controller or business manager.

The A.A.S. degree prepares you with the skills needed for a paraprofessional entry-level position in accounting. Employment possibilities include staff accountant, accounting specialist, clerk, cost accountant, accounts payable/receivable coordinator, and payroll accountant.

The Certificate program is designed to give you the specialized set of tools you will need for immediate employment in a broad range of entry-level accounting positions or to upgrade your existing skills.
