Accounting


DEGREE: Associate of Applied Science.

A career in Accounting involves the financial aspects of a business. Students interested in Accounting will learn how businesses track revenues, expenses, assets, liabilities, and owner's equity. Accountants prepare, analyze, and verify financial reports, monitor information systems to track financial performance, prepare tax returns, as well as determine costs for health care benefits management. According to the Department of Labor, employment for accountants is expected to increase, growing faster than the average for all occupations.
