Accounting Major and Minor
Accounting has been called "the language of business." As with any language, to comprehend its meaning one must not only read it, write it, and speak it, but understand the context in which it is communicated as well. Our students learn accounting in a liberal arts environment. Specifically, the accounting program develops students' technical competencies while stressing critical thinking and analytical abilities, as well as written and oral communication skills. The importance of ethical considerations and the significance of the interdisciplinary nature of societal problems are emphasized. Students prepare for careers in public accounting, private industry, government, and related executive and managerial opportunities. Students also receive the foundation to pursue advanced studies in accounting, business administration, law, and various other disciplines. The accounting major attempts to instill in the student the desire for life long learning and the responsibility to contribute to society by applying their skills and knowledge to help solve the complex problems of the world in which they live.
