Accounting and Bookkeeping

The Associate in Business DTA degree for business majors is a 90-credit program which includes the coursework required for transfer to a four-year college or university with junior-class standing. This is the recommended program for students who intend to earn a baccalaureate degree in any area of business administration, including accounting. Currently, individuals must hold a bachelor’s degree to sit for the CPA Exam.

The 90-credit Associate in Technical Arts (ATA) degree program in accounting is designed for those who desire an associate degree in accounting and a position as a staff accountant in industry or government. While some of the coursework required for the bookkeeping certificate and ATA degree programs may be transferable to a four-year college or university, these programs are not intended for transfer.

• Describe the multiple contexts of business—social, cultural, economic and legal—within a sustainable domestic and global environment.

• Define how elements of the legal environment impact business.

• Demonstrate the ability to effectively plan and to communicate orally and in writing.
