The B.S. Degree in Accounting provides basic preparation for careers in public accounting, corporate finance and accounting, and government and not-for-profit accounting. Students interested in meeting the 150 hours requirement for CPA certification should contact their advisor before the end of the freshman year to devise a strategy. The Accounting degree is an excellent degree for many career goals and is in demand because of the analytical skills that it develops. Accounting is one of the fastest growing professions and graduates with good GPAs have numerous career choices and opportunities in business and government. It is also excellent preparation for continued study for graduate degrees such as the Master of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Accountancy (MA), and Juris Doctor (law).
