Accounting degrees and programs

Accounting offers students the opportunity both to develop practical skills and acquire general knowledge in Accounting, a field with extensive career and post-graduate research opportunities. We offer an accounting minor and major, along with an on-campus or online master's degree program. 

The College of Business also allows for a hybrid accounting/information systems major for those students interested in using both accounting and information skills in a single career path.

Our mission

We will develop an adaptive accounting program to respond to the evolving needs of the accounting profession. To do so, we will provide not only the underlying technical skills, but also the understanding, critical thinking, work ethic and values the profession desires. We will contribute to academia and the profession, consistent with the University’s mission of research excellence, by publishing research on important accounting topics and related fields as well as advancing pedagogical knowledge. We will engage with the accounting profession, business community, academic organizations and the University in mutually beneficial ways. We will encourage a collegial and supportive culture within the university, a respect and tolerance for people and their ideas as well as an environment that values diversity and nurtures success.


An accounting education opens up an extremely diverse range of careers for students. Find out more about typical professions that our students embark on with their undergraduate degree.
