Accounting Transfer Pathway (AA)


The Accounting Transfer Pathway will enable students to complete the first two years of coursework needed to transfer to a four-year university program. In all of our accounting programs, not only will you learn about accounting theory, techniques, and practices; but you will also be exposed to the basics of business. Accounting is known as the “language of business” because the terms and concepts are generally used in all fields of business. The accountant is the key figure in the reporting, analysis, and evaluation of relevant financial information to various users. The impact and importance accounting information has to other business and related fields provide many career opportunities for accountants. To round out your education, you will take communications classes as well as arts and sciences classes in the social sciences and humanities.
