Two-Year Associate of Applied Science Degree

The Accounting AAS degree is offered to students seeking employment primarily in occupations related to accounting and finance. This program focuses on the fundamental areas of accounting, including management, finance, business law, economics, and use of computers in business operations. Theory and current trends are explored, and numerous opportunities exist for practical application of concepts to actual organizational situations. Business ethics and workplace dynamics are addressed throughout this program with strong focus on professional communication and interpersonal skills. Students intending to transfer to a university will have completed substantial coursework necessary for successful transfer to a bachelor’s degree program.

Program Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of the program, students will be able to:

  • Apply accounting methods, tools, and concepts in an ethical and legal manner.
  • Analyze accounting information using industry standards, generally accepted accounting principles, or international financial reporting standards.
  • Use accounting technology and equipment in proper form.
  • Develop appropriately formatted accounting reports for both internal and external users.
  • Identify internal control issues in accounting policies and procedures.

Program Recommendations

It is highly recommended that students complete pre-collegiate courses to gain math skills in the first terms of their program. At a minimum completion of MTH 070 or testing above MTH 070 is recommended before beginning the core courses in this degree.

Students interested in accounting should work closely with their academic advisor to create a plan that addresses their specific career interests. Advanced training may be required for certain occupations, and transfer degrees may be more appropriate for students intending to further their education beyond Klamath Community College.
