The Accounting program prepares students for careers in public, business, or governmental accounting. It also provides the foundation for those students who are interested in transferring to a four-year university and completing their bachelor’s degree.
Students learn to perform accounting functions, record and verify transactions, prepare payrolls, monitor inventory, prepare financial statements, and analyze financial information. Emphasis is placed on both manual and computer accounting programs with the student learning accounting packages along with word processing and spreadsheet software.
The demand for accounting personnel has been great. Graduates are employed as bookkeepers, auditors, tax preparers, compilers of financial information, cost accountants, and financial analysts.
