This program provides training for entry-level employment in private industry or in government accounting or for self-employment as a provider of computer-based bookkeeping and/or tax services. In addition, those individuals already employed in accounting can work toward career advancement by taking additional courses. Generally, employment in this specialization also requires proficiency in computer applications and good communication skills.
Some Career Opportunities may require more than two years of college study.
Note to Transfer Students:
If you are interested in transferring to a four-year college or university to pursue a bachelor's degree in this major, it is critical that you meet with a CRC counselor to select and plan the courses for your major. The A.A. in Business Administration degree listed under the Business Program in this Catalog provides the lower division courses that are required for a baccalaureate degree in business, regardless of the area of emphasis. The CRC Associate Degree in Accounting is designed for students wishing to seek employment instead of transfer upon its completion.
