The accounting profession is changing at a dramatic and rapid pace. The demand for individuals skilled in accounting is expected to increase as managers rely more on accounting information to make business decisions. If you're looking for a career with great flexibility and skills that are extremely portable, a career in accounting is for you.
At SCC, accounting 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 accounting at a four-year institution. The Associate of Arts transfer degree parallels the first two years of a business degree at four-year institutions. With a bachelor's degree, students can look forward to earning certifications such as:
Two-Year Path, Associate of Applied Science Degree – Accounting Option
