The Accounting degree program provides students with an understanding of accounting skills and knowledge of business fundamentals. Students learn about all facets of the accounting profession, and enhance their skills through cooperative education work experience.
The Accounting program also offers three certificates:
- The Accounting Certificate is for those who have earned a degree in a different discipline and need accounting courses to prepare for the CPA exam, or those who may need accounting courses for job promotion. This program is best suited for students currently employed in the accounting field.
- The Bookkeeping Certificate prepares individuals for employment as a bookkeeper in a small or medium-sized organization, along with preparation needed to take a national certification exam.
- The Tax Practitioner Certificate prepares individuals to prepare federal, state, and local tax returns as well as tax forms required for trusts, estates, and nonprofit organizations. Students also gain experience by participating in the Volunteer Income Tax Assistant (VITA) program of the Internal Revenue Service.
