The Bachelor of Science in Accounting program for traditional day students provides students with a strong foundation in accounting and business. The major in accounting prepares students to take the Professional Certified Public Accountants Examination leading to licensure as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). As governmentally licensed agents, CPAs are responsible for safeguarding the general public’s economic and financial interests by providing assessments of the current and future financial viability of business organizations to the investing public. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, accountants and auditors are expected to experience much faster than average employment growth from 2008-18.
