Quincy College offers an Associate’s degree in Business with a Major in Accounting.  This is part of the Professional Programs Division.  This program is Business focus and allows graduates the flexibility to obtain Accounting jobs or Managerial positions.  Although it is primarily a business focus, we have had numerous students go into the Certified Public Accounting Discipline.  Several are currently working for the Big four. The college also offers an Accounting certificate program.  This program is very popular with students trying to get into a Masters program.  Many colleges require an academic accounting background for entrance.

The college offers a wide variety of courses.  Our Accounting program mirrors four year Accounting major programs.  We offer introductory and advanced accounting courses.  The course selection goes from Bookkeeping to Fraud and Accounting IV courses.

Accounting positions are in every aspect of the economy.  They go from Private Industry to City, State, and Federal government.  Salary ranges start at $25 an hour for Bookkeepers to $150 for consultants. A Quincy College graduate with an Accounting major can expect to get a salary of $25 to $35 dollars an hour.
