Learn the skills you need to thrive in an office environment with Collin College’s Business Office Support Systems (BOSS) program. BOSS students learn skills like: keyboarding by touch and improved speed and accuracy; workplace document formatting; word processing with Word; proofreading and editing; records and information management; business correspondence and communications; database management using Access; presentation and spreadsheet software using PowerPoint and Excel; office management; and manual and computerized office accounting.

You can apply those skills to careers like receptionist, bookkeeper, office manager, data entry clerk, administrative assistant, medical office assistant and more. Some of the courses required for this Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree are also excellent preparation for the experienced secretary who plans to take the Certified Professional Secretary exam. The secretary who has already passed the CPS exam may apply for academic credit from Collin College to be applied toward the AAS degree in Business Office Support Systems.
