Program description
This program prepare students with a broad business background, as well as provide specialized training in office skills. While students are accepted into the program each quarter, those who start in September find it easier to schedule their courses in the suggested sequences. Prerequisites may include: demonstrated proficiency in math, English, and basic keyboarding skills. Upon completion, students will be prepared to compete for entry-level employment as office assistants, receptionists, and transcriptionists in general offices, legal offices, or medical offices. These Business Office Technology degrees are based upon a first year of core course offerings. The Office Assistant and Medical Office Assistant programs begin with a core group of courses. Since many of these courses are offered only one or two quarters during the year, it is essential that students accurately plan each year of study with the help of their advisor. During the second year, students will specialize in their selected field.
