Accounting is an information and measurement system that identifies, records, and communicates relevant, reliable, and comparable information about an organization's business activities. It helps us make better decisions, including assessing opportunities, products, investments, and social and community responsibilities. Completing accounting courses will help you apply information in a way you can use in your accounting career or in your everyday life.
The mission of the accounting program at Seward County Community College is to prepare students in the accounting discipline for occupational careers, transfer programs, continuing education, personal needs and/or other related business careers.
Students have the ability to take part in the accounting internship program. This course is designed to give the student on-the-job training under the supervision of an employer and coordinating instructor. Eligibility requirements may apply.
