The Accounting Program provides a broad base of study and is designed to ensure that the student is adequately prepared for entry-level positions. Through careful course selection within the program and supporting fields, it is possible for students to prepare themselves for careers in government, nonprofit organizations, and private industry. Students aspiring to become certified public accountants (CPAs) need to be aware of the educational requirements of the state in which they intend to sit for the CPA examination. Advisors in the program are available to help students plan their courses to meet the CPA requirements or any specialty within the field of accounting.
