The mission of the Business Office Technology Department is to prepare students for entry level careers in the field of office administration through Certificates and Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree programs.
The AAS degree in Business Office Technology includes a combination of courses and practical experiences concerning communication skills, accounting, generally accepted office procedures, and in-depth knowledge of most of the commonly used software in today’s modern offices including Microsoft Office, Adobe Acrobat, and QuickBooks. Graduates in this program are prepared to work as office administrators, administrative assistants, secretaries, word processors, accounting assistants, bookkeepers, cashiers, tellers, and in other related occupations depending on the area of specialization.
Students can obtain a one semester Office Specialist certificate, an Administrative Assistant one-year certificate and/or a two-year Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in Business Office Technology.
Students may choose to begin in the Office Specialist certificate because this Level
1 Certificate is TSI exempt.
If a student successfully completes the Office Specialist Certificate and decides
to continue with the Administrative Assistant certificate or the Associate of Applied
Science (AAS) degree in Business Office Technology, the certificate courses will transfer
to the AAS degree.
The mission of the Business Administration AA Degree is to prepare students for transfer to upper-level universities in the field of business and accounting through Associate of Arts degree program.
The Business Office Technology Department currently offers the Business Administration Associates of Arts (AA) degree.
