Administrative Assistance and Secretarial Science
Almost every office, from law firms to nonprofits to travel agencies, needs a good support staff to answer phones, draft correspondence, file, enter data into computers, keep records, and perform countless other tasks.
A degree in administrative assistance and secretarial science will give you the practical skills you’ll need to help an office run smoothly. While many administrative assistants and secretaries learn their work on the job, a degree in this field can prepare you to hit the ground running when you enter the work world. Classes cover such topics as general computer skills, data entry, public relations, filing systems, and report preparation.
