Minor in Accounting

24 units
The accounting minor surveys the principles, theories, and concepts of the accounting profession. Its practical component leads to work assignments in international, national, and 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.

Benefits of Adding a Minor

A minor can help students complement their bachelor’s degree and stand out to future employers, helping them expand their employment opportunities as they study an additional area of interest. Complementary minors provide students the opportunity to demonstrate added expertise in their field and specialize in an area that may provide an edge in their job search, and also add knowledge that can be used throughout an individual’s career. 


No more than three courses in a student’s major may count toward this minor.
