Accounting

Award: Associate of Applied Science Degree
Length: Four semesters
Clerical Accounting (option)—Two semesters; graduates receive a diploma
Fall semester entry for full-time students; part-time students may enter any term

 

As an Accounting student, you will work extensively with all aspects of the accounting cycle to prepare yourself for entry-level employment in a variety of accounting and financial settings.

After the first two semesters of the program, you will be prepared for an entry-level position in bookkeeping and general accounting. If you graduate from the two-year degree program, you will have additional skills useful in a public, private, or government accounting career.

As the economy grows, the number of business establishments will increase, requiring more accountants and auditors to set up books, prepare taxes, and provide management advice. If you someday plan on continuing your education to get a bachelor’s degree, you may want to consider the Pre-Professional Accounting program.

Where will I get a job?
Accounting graduates find work in bookkeeping, at CPA firms, and at banks.

How much $ will I make?
$27,000–$33,000 a year.

What kind of classes will I take?
There will be about a 50/50 split between lecture and “lab”. Lab work is paper, pencil and computer work.

What’s unique about this program?
This program is very inventive. The instructor is willing to try new learning techniques and ideas and see how students will grow using them. The advisory board also ensures that students are learning the appropriate things in order to become successful in their field after graduation.
