Accounting, AAS

 Accounting is a crucial part of every business operation and the language that businesses speak. The associate of applied science degree program focuses on practical skills often required for entry-level paraprofessional positions. The internship course gives the graduate on-the-job experience working in an approved business. Two-year graduates may find positions as accounting assistants, accounting clerks and general bookkeepers.

The accounting career program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). For students wishing to transfer to a four-year college accounting or business program, this accreditation makes the transfer a smoother process. For more information, please contact the department chair or a JCCC counselor.
