Accounting Minor (ACC)
The Accounting minor provides students with a strong academic foundation in the field of accounting which will serve as a basis for further advanced study in accounting at the graduate level. It is anticipated that students who declare the accounting minor will continue their accounting education by enrolling in the MBA program in order to prepare themselves for the Uniform Certified Public Accountancy exam and a career in public accounting.
Students may apply to the accounting minor any time during their academic career provided that their cumulative grade point average is 3.10 or higher. The Accounting minor may be completed by students who are non business majors. Business majors interested in an in depth study of accounting should complete the Accounting - CPA Preparation specialization.
Completion of the minor requires 24 credits.
