Minor in Accounting

Students may seek either an academic major or minor in accounting.

The accounting minor complements the skills the student gains in his or her major discipline by providing a study of how the accounting environment measures and communicates the economic activities of organizations to enable stakeholders to make informed decisions regarding the allocation of limited resources.

Requirements for the Minor

A minor in accounting requires the completion of 15 credits of coursework in accounting. Any ACCT courses apply.

Courses already applied toward other degree requirements (e.g., major or general education) may not be applied toward the minor. At least 9 credits must be earned in upper-level courses (numbered 300 or above). Prerequisites apply for all courses.
