    Associate Degree in Accounting (Continuing Studies)

    An accounting major opens the door to dynamic careers in any area of business. What’s more, job opportunities in the accounting profession are plentiful — and expected to grow.

    Designed especially for working adults, the "part-time" accounting major at Dean College combines a solid foundation in accounting and financial principles with liberal arts courses such as psychology and composition. Not only will you gain basic knowledge of accounting, you’ll also gain the communication and critical-thinking skills required for success in any career.

    With your accounting degree from Dean, you’ll be ready to transfer to a four-year school or step directly into a dynamic career in bookkeeping, accounting or auditing.
