BSC Accounting majors who study accounting and other business administration courses will obtain a basic understanding of the world of business and industry. Because technology is an integral component of the accounting program at BSC the latest software programs used by business and industry across the nation are available for student use in the computer labs.
Students taking accounting should enjoy processing information and thinking analytically. In addition, good interpersonal and writing skills are also valuable. High school students should have mathematics courses in algebra and geometry. However, those programs are not mandatory for success.
Students who complete the requirements earn an Associate in Arts degree. Since programs at four-year colleges vary somewhat, students should consult the catalog of the college to which they plan to transfer and modify BSC’s suggested curriculum.
BSC has cooperative agreements with Dickinson State University (DSU) and Minot State University (MSU) that allow students to complete the Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree at BSC and continue with a bachelor’s degree on the BSC campus. Programs offered by DSU related to this program are Accounting, Business Administration, Finance, Human Resource Management, and International Business. Bachelor’s degree programs offered by MSU on the BSC campus include Management and Marketing.
Contact your BSC advisor for assistance with transfer planning.
