Business Major
Business and Technology Department
Associate of Applied Science

The Associate of Applied Science in Business, Accounting Concentration is designed to prepare students for employment in public, private, and governmental accounting as a paraprofessional. The program covers financial, managerial, and tax accounting using manual and computerized accounting systems.

The A.A.S. in Business, Accounting Concentration was developed in compliance with the Complete College Tennessee Act of 2010. Students who begin this program at Motlow State Community College and transfer to another Tennessee public community college are guaranteed that their credits will transfer and will be credited toward completion of the AAS in Business, Accounting Concentration at the receiving institution.

The A.A.S. degree is NOT intended to transfer to a four-year college or university. Most BUSN courses and some ACCT courses (in the Accounting concentration only) will count as lower-division electives at the TBR universities and most other four-year colleges and universities if the student transfers to pursue a business-related degree. However, some four-year colleges and universities will accept these credits into their Integrated Studies, Professional Studies, Liberal Arts, or similar programs, and a few four-year colleges and universities (including Trevecca and Western Governors) will accept these credits into business-related programs. Please consult their catalogs or websites for specific requirements.
