Accounting is a professional program that prepares students for careers in industry, public accounting, government (local, state and federal), and not-for-profit institutions (hospitals, schools, etc.).
Students are exposed to areas of the profession through course work, cooperative education and internship opportunities, the study abroad program, career functions, guest speakers, and career fairs and events.
As industry, the economy, and regulatory requirements grow more complex, the demand for accountants continues to grow and the role that the accountant fulfills in the reporting and analysis of financial data becomes increasingly more important and critical. In addition to satisfying the college’s institutional and distribution requirements and the cognate and core requirements for the major in business administration, students concentrating in accounting must complete the following courses:
ACC 3303 Intermediate Accounting I
ACC 3304 Intermediate Accounting II
ACC 3308 Cost Accounting
ACC 4406 Advanced Accounting
ACC 4407 Taxes
ACC 4408 Auditing
