Find Your Major
The Accounting major provides students with the pre-professional training that will enable them to solve tomorrow’s complex problems and to be leaders in business and related fields. Accounting majors have two degree paths from which to choose. Students may complete: (1) a 120-hour degree, which is considered the 4-year private track, or (2) a 150-hour degree, which is the public track. The 150-hour degree qualifies students to take the Certified Public Accounting Exam (CPA).
Another alternative path for Accounting majors is to complete the private track and then complete a Master’s Degree. Beyond this, majors may select from a wide variety of elective courses in order to receive more specific training or to further develop skills and expertise. In addition, depending on career goals and interests, the department has recommended courses offered from other departments to further develop abilities and knowledge.
