Department of Accounting Mission: Our primary purpose is to provide for general professional accounting education leading to careers in both private and public sectors. The baccalaureate concentration in accounting provides a foundation for a career in accounting or a basis to pursue graduate study. The Master of Accountancy degree focuses on educational preparation for a career as a certified public accountant or for advanced placement in industry, government, or not-for-profit organizations. The Department also provides courses in accounting as a service for both undergraduate and graduate non-accounting majors.
The Department encourages faculty research contributions in a broad range of areas with an emphasis on applied scholarship and instructional development. As members of the accounting profession, the Department supports faculty and student participation in professional organizations.

Reporting on the financial affairs of private and public institutions, preparing regulatory reports, and tax return preparation require sound accounting procedures. Since management decisions are made from accounting information, qualified accountants must be available, not only as executive accountants for industrial firms but also as public accountants for auditing and for general services to business firms and governmental agencies. The major in accounting is designed to prepare students for positions in these areas.
A student is not permitted to repeat any accounting course for which they have previously earned a grade of "C" or better.
The following courses are required:

ACC 331 ACC 341 ACC 371
ACC 372 ACC 381 ACC 416
ACC 451

Choose two electives from the following:

ACC 432 ACC 452 ACC 461

TRANSIENT COURSE CREDIT
All students majoring in Accounting must receive prior approval from the Chair of the Department before taking courses in the major field at another institution. Failure to obtain prior approval may result in loss of transfer credit for the course work.
Only equivalent courses with grades of “C” or above from a college of business that is accredited by AACSB International will be accepted.
