The mission of the Office Administration Department is to prepare students for entry level careers in the field of office administration through Certificate and Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree programs.
The AAS degree in Office Administration includes a combination of courses and practical experiences concerning communication skills, accounting, generally accepted office procedures, and in-depth knowledge of most of the commonly used software in today’s modern offices including Microsoft Office and QuickBooks. Graduates in this program are prepared to work as office administrators, administrative assistants, secretaries, word processors, accounting assistants, bookkeepers, cashiers, tellers, and in other related occupations depending on the area of specialization.
Students can obtain an Administrative Assistant one-year certificate and/or a two-year Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in Office Administration.
Students may choose to begin in the Administrative Assistant Certificate because most certificate programs are TSI exempt. However, students are still asked to take a reading, writing, and math test. These tests are given by the Testing Center at WCJC.
If a student successfully completes the Administrative Assistant Certificate and decides
to continue with the Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in Office Administration,
the certificate courses will transfer to the AAS degree.
The mission of the Business Administration Department is to prepare students for transfer to upper-level universities in the field of business and accounting through Associate of Arts degree program.
The Business Administration Department currently offers the Business Administration Associates of Arts (AA) degree.
