Accounting

Major / Minor

Dana Allen, MST, instructor of accounting, teaches a class in the Howard J. Burnett Center October 27, 2020 on the campus of Washington & Jefferson College.

The Accounting program of the Department of Economics & Business provides the opportunity to study what is often called “the language of business.” The program prepares students for entry-level positions in public accounting, private business organizations, not-for-profit organizations, and governmental entities, or for a wide variety of graduate programs including accounting, business and law. Within the college’s liberal arts environment, the program develops technical competency in accounting, while stressing critical thinking and analysis, as well as technology, writing and oral communication skills.

Beyond the Classroom

Students have a wide array of opportunities for research, internships, conferences, and networking beyond the classroom that give them an advantage to prepare for life after W&J
