Accounting Major (BA Adult)

The major builds upon a strong liberal arts and business core foundation and prepares students for professional certifications such as the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and the Certified Management Accountant (CMA). This program does not provide these certifications.  Students interested in earning these certifications should check with their state’s CPA  or CMA education requirements. This program has been designed for students who have completed an AS, AAS, or equivalent degree in Accounting.
