Accounting

Accounting offers an interesting and rewarding career to people who can work with numbers, focus on details, use a computer, and work as part of a team. There is a strong demand for accounting assistants and tax preparers, and you can advance in your career by demonstrating your skills on the job. The accounting program offers the classes required to complete the education requirements for the CPA Exam and Enrolled Agent Exam. However, a bachelors degree (any subject) is required to sit for the CPA Exam.
