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 concentration in accounting is designed to prepare students for positions in these areas. The program is broad and covers the functional areas of business. An accounting major must complete eight accounting courses.
The following six accounting courses are required:
ACC 331 ACC 341 ACC 371
ACC 372 ACC 381 ACC 451
In addition to these six accounting courses required of all accounting majors, students must take two electives from the following five accounting courses:
ACC 416 ACC 432 ACC 434
ACC 452 ACC 461  
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 The International Association for Management Education will be accepted.
