Bachelor's and Associate Degrees
More than just debits and credits, the accounting bachelor of science and the accounting associate in science degrees at Central Penn College provides students an opportunity to immerse themselves in real-world learning. Students are taught by our highly experienced faculty members who maintain their CPA certifications so they can teach you industry standard practices.
After learning the fundamentals of accounting theory, students will experience hands-on learning using computer applications, including TaxAct and Drake. By utilizing these computer tools, Central Penn graduates can build their résumés, even before they graduate.
Accounting students become investigators, learning to problem solve and research accounting and financial data issues and procedures. Students learn to interpret generally accepted accounting principles and auditing standards, and apply them to the business environment.
Central Penn accounting students learn to properly interpret, analyze and prepare financial statements for a number of industries, including manufacturing, retail, service and non-profit or government entities. All of this leads to graduates who are well-rounded and able to tackle accounting in a number of different fields.
