Accounting, as the language of business, is concerned with how businesses report their transactions and how they interpret the summaries of those transactions. Accountants record and summarize the economic events within a business. In addition, they interpret financial information and conduct solvency and profitability analyses to serve as a basis for sound business decisions.

Within the mission of the college, the Accounting Department has several objectives:

  • Provide high quality accounting and business programs, which will prepare our students for successful careers in business and government.
  • Provide students with a broad-base understanding of the concepts of accounting, business and management.
  • Provide transfer preparation for universities.

Students planning to transfer to a four-year institution and major in accounting should consult with a counselor regarding the transfer process and lower division requirements.
