Financial Services Program


Mike Farmer

Mike Farmer, program director

The two-year associate of applied science in financial services is a good fit for current financial services employees and for students who want to enter the profession. Courses include marketing, accounting, management, sales and service, introduction to investments and consumer lending.

This program has existed since 2014 and had its initial graduates in 2016. It is now eligible and has been applied for accreditation.

Work Settings

The program will prepare students for careers with companies such as credit unions, banks and insurance agencies. Companies in the region are hiring more than 100 employees per year in financial services roles.


The Financial Services degree program provides a flexible platform that allows you to begin or advance your career in banking, finance, and insurance from any of our campus locations. Also for your busy schedule, you have the opportunity to attend classes from your personal computer or mobile device from anywhere. Through Roane State’s new distance education platform (Zoom) you can attend interactive classes with live lectures, or record the classes and take them at your convenience. Classroom participation is always an important ingredient in student success, but when your busy schedule does not allow it, our distance education platform provides an opportunity for you to keep up with the lessons.
