Accounting Degrees

For Transfer Students

If you are planning to transfer to a four year institution to earn a bachelor's degree in accounting, you should pursue the general Liberal Arts A.A. degree, and only take accounting courses ACC 153 and ACC 154. Other accounting courses do not transfer to a four year institution.

Liberal Arts A.A.

For Career Students

If you are not planning to transfer to a four year institution and want a substantial accounting education, then consider the A.A.S. in Accounting. This degree is a career degree program. It scales back the general education and business core classes and focuses heavily on the accounting major. You will develop strong accounting skills and will be able to perform staff accountant duties. But the upper level classes will not transfer to a four year institution, and the degree will not qualify you for those positions which require a bachelor's degree.

Accounting Associate A.A.S.

If you are looking for job skills, or you already have a bachelor's degree, you may prefer an accounting certificate program.
