Students wishing to augment their field of study with the perspective and tools of accounting are encouraged to consider a minor in accounting.

You don’t have to work in business or finance to reap the benefits of accounting. The tools and broad perspective the accounting minor offers can prove useful in virtually every profession, as well as in your personal life. If you’re interested in augmenting your major and broadening your professional skills, this is a great way to gain a familiarity with the central tenets of accounting.

This six-course program examines managerial and financial accounting and offers a number of electives such as Auditing Theory and Practice and Advanced Federal Income Tax Procedure. Our faculty members bring a wealth of experience to the classroom, having worked as certified public accountants, business professionals and lawyers.
