Accounting A.A.S.

Accounting student

Accounting is the language of business.

Our Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree program will make you fluent in that language as experienced faculty mentor you for a rewarding career in accounting and finance.

Along with 15 credit hours of accounting, your well-rounded education will be marked by supporting courses in law, statistics, business organization and computer information systems. Our job placement in all accounting-related fields is second to none.

Our students also use interactive computerized programs designed as part of the Accounting Education Change Commission initiative, allowing you to experience accounting with immediate, consistent feedback.

You also can join Morrisville’s Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda (FBLA-PBL) Chapter, where you can attend local and national conferences and compete against other accounting and business students in virtual and on-site competitions.

If you plan to work immediately after graduation, additional courses in accounting will enhance your portfolio as you prepare for positions such as an accounting technician, bookkeeper, accounts clerk, payroll examiner, or loan and lending banking officer.

If you decide to continue into a baccalaureate degree program, a wide range of electives beyond accounting will expand your overall knowledge of society and its diverse marketplaces.

Our accounting programs are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), certifying that our teaching and learning processes meet rigorous educational standards.
