To help with learning this language is the Department of Accounting faculty, who publish articles in top academic and professional journals, write textbooks and trade books, and are active participants in the accounting profession.
  • The Bachelor of Science in Accounting is a 120-hour program that trains students to show proficiency in accounting technology, demonstrate research skills, defend proposed solutions to accounting problems, and improve communication skills.
