Tax Major

Tax code changes are requiring more tax forms and knowledge than ever. You can fill the needs of businesses and certified public accounting firms for employees who have outstanding knowledge of accounting, business transactions and tax law – and are able to convert it into tax return preparation and tax savings.

In addition, the associate degree in accounting can be earned completely online. With online classes and flexible scheduling including day, and/or evening classes, students can complete an associate degree in accounting in as little as two years.
