Accounting Program

The Accounting curriculum is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary for employment and growth in the accounting profession.  Using the "language of business", accountants assemble and analyze, process, and communicate essential information about financial operations.

In addition to course work in accounting principles, theories, and practice, students study business law, finance, management, and economics.  Related skills are developed through the study of communications, computer applications, financial analysis, critical thinking skills, and ethics.

Graduates should qualify for entry-level accounting positions in many types of organizations including accounting firms, small businesses, manufacturing firms, banks, hospitals, school systems, and governmental agencies.  With work experience and additional education, individuals may advance in the accounting profession.
