Courses & Requirements

The associate in science degree program in Accounting provides a basic core of business courses which introduces students to a broad variety of areas within the field of business and prepares them to select that particular phase of specialization which best suits their needs, abilities and interests. The Accounting specialization is designed to prepare students to enter business, industry or government in the specific field of accounting. A minimum of 65 credit hours are required for graduation.

Starting in the Fall of 2014, any student enrolled in an associate degree program who is new to NECC and has no academic history at the college, must take at least one course designated as intensive in each of NECC’s six core academic skills in order to graduate. In most cases, the program’s core required courses include these intensive courses. Plan to see an advisor for more complete information about this graduation requirement.
