ACCT 1001 - Accounting I♦

(5 cr.) An introduction to accounting, this course presents the basic techniques and procedures of accounting for organizations. Students work toward gaining requisite skills that they can apply to future courses and projects in their program. Through weekly discussions, they practice communicating with peers while examining the central policies and procedures of an accounting system and utilizing basic terminology, such as language found in the four main types of financial statements. Students prepare basic financial statements through which they learn how statements are constructed and interrelated. They also examine acceptable methods of valuing assets, liabilities, and owner’s equity. For an interdisciplinary perspective, students explore how computer technology lends to the profession by examining the types of programs available to perform accounting tasks.
  (Prerequisite(s): MATH 1001 or MATH 1002 or STAT 3001, and BUSI 1001 or HLTH 4000.)
