Accounting Specialization


The 24-hour specialization in accounting is intended primarily for students planning careers in one of four general areas: (1) public accounting; (2) managerial accounting; (3) governmental accounting; and (4) accounting education. The accounting program also provides an excellent foundation for other careers, such as law and business management.

The professional public accountant serves clients chiefly by performing independent audits, preparing tax returns, and giving professional advice concerning such matters as accounting systems. The managerial accountant provides information and advice for planning and controlling company operations. Local, state, and federal agencies provide opportunities in public sector accounting. Many accounting majors continue in graduate school to prepare for college teaching.
