The Blinn College District Accounting Program provides academic degree plans designed for transfer toward four-year bachelor's degree programs in accounting and applied science degree plans designed for entry into the workforce.
Associate of Science Degree
Students who wish to pursue a bachelor's degree in accounting should complete the Associate of Science in Business degree plan. This degree can be completed through face-to-face or online courses, and Blinn offers an accelerated plan that allows students to earn their degree in just one year.
This accelerated degree path is designed for non-traditional students seeking to earn their degree as quickly as possible or high-achieving traditional students who want to transfer quickly. Through the accelerated pathway, students can take five courses each Fall and Spring semester, six courses during the Summer terms, and one course apiece during the May and Winter minimesters to complete the 60-hour requirement. To participate in this pathway, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Certificate and Associate of Applied Science Degree
The Associate of Applied Science (AAS) Degree in Accounting and the Accounting Technology Certificate prepare students to enter the accounting field upon completion. Students who complete the Accounting Technology Certificate have a foundation in accounting that prepares them for careers in payroll or bookkeeping and can continue their education to pursue the AAS in Accounting.
Blinn's AAS in Accounting includes courses in corporate tax, internal controls, and auditing and prepares students to work as advanced bookkeepers or audit clerks. Students who earn their AAS can continue their studies by pursuing the Bachelor of Applied Arts and Science in Business Management offered by Texas A&M-Central Texas at the RELLIS Campus.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, accountants and auditors earn a median salary of $69,350, and employment is expected to grow 10% (faster than average) between 2016 and 2026, creating an additional 139,900 jobs.
