Business Studies Department

  • What We Do

    The Business Studies Department focuses on all aspects of the business profession, including accounting and economics.

    Students can take individual courses or work toward a letter of recognition, certificate, or associates degree. In each case credits from one credential count towards the next higher level. For example, the letter of recognition credits can be used towards the certificate.

    What You Get

    Students can choose from a wide variety of programs, from very specific offerings such as, Health Care Management, Accounting and Taxation, or Residential Property Management, to general career preparation programs in Business Management, Entrepreneurship, or Accounting, to transfer programs that prepare students for advanced study at a four-year school (Business Administration, Economics, or Accounting Transfer programs). See the complete program options listed to the left.

    Where You'll Go

    Students can pursue careers in the business of their choice or continue their education.
