B.S. in Business: Accounting


The accounting major surveys the principles, theories, and concepts of the accounting profession while providing an intense review of the economic, quantitative, and managerial aspects of business. Its practical component leads to work assignments in local certified public accountant (CPA) firms in students’ junior and senior years. The combination of classroom theory and real-world experience also prepares candidates for the CPA examination administered by the various state boards of accountancy in the United States.

Career Opportunities

Opportunities available to graduates include professional careers in accounting services, auditing, management advising services, and accounting departments in private firms and government bodies.


The accounting major comprises 67-69 units. Students must achieve an average GPA of 2.5 or higher in their major courses (this includes the Business Core).
