Emilia Chukwuma, Program Coordinator
Ely Center, Room 203
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 department and supporting fields, it is possible for students to prepare themselves for careers in government 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 department are available to help students plan their courses to meet the CPA requirements or any specialty within the field of Accounting.
Requirements for a Minor in Accounting
The minor in accounting consists of a minimum of 15 credit hours of accounting courses. Business majors who plan to minor in Accounting must take a total of 15 credit hours in accounting (ACC 301, ACC 302, and ACC 303 are mandatory) beyond ACC 201 and ACC 202 as these two courses are part of their Business major requirements and cannot be used to satisfy the accounting minor requirements. The specific course of study will be determined in consultation with the Accounting Program Coordinator or an advisor within the accounting program. For non-business majors who plan to minor in Accounting, ACC 201, ACC 202, ACC 301, ACC 302, and ACC 303 are required.
