Accounting Technology (2201)
The accounting technology program is primarily designed for those students who intend to seek immediate employment in some area of accounting. The program is also intended for, and most beneficial to, those individuals who are presently using accounting and/or accounting information in their employment. The aim of the A.S. accounting technology program is to prepare students for positions in industry; federal, state and local government; and public accounting. The professional certified public accountant candidate should follow the associate in arts degree for the business administration program of studies.
The accounting technology program is based upon the development of a thorough knowledge of accounting principles and theory, and then seeks to develop the students ability to apply this knowledge to problem situations. An intensive study of accounting and related business subjects is combined with general education courses to provide a well-balanced program.
The department chairperson, with the approval of the instructional dean, may require additional courses or make substitutions required to meet the needs of students.
NOTE: This associate in science degree program is intended primarily for students who desire to complete an associates degree and become employed. Students who decide to pursue university transfer study must meet certain course and test requirements. For details refer to university transfer requirements.
