At SCC, finance students may choose one of three pathways:

Four-Year Path, Associate of Arts Degree:

The two-year Associate of Arts transfer degree with an emphasis in pre-business will provide you with a good foundation before continuing your education in finance at a four-year institution. The Associate of Arts transfer degree parallels the first two years of a business degree at senior institutions, so many of your community college credits will transfer towards the bachelor's degree. With the bachelor's degree, students can look forward to earning certifications such as:
