Bachelor of Science in Accounting
The principal objectives of the Bachelor of Science in Accounting program are to provide students with a broad, fundamental knowledge of the field, to prepare students for employment in accounting careers, and to provide a strong liberal arts component that develops communications skills, information literacy, abstract thinking and critical analysis and fosters historical, political and social awareness.
Courses earned from Strayer University do not automatically qualify the holder to participate in professional licensing examinations to practice certain professions in any state. All students interested in practicing a regulated accounting profession requiring licensure from a state regulatory agency should contact the appropriate state regulatory agency in the field of their interest. A listing of contact information for the most common accounting-related licensing boards is available on the Strayer University website at: https://icampus.strayer.edu/assignments-academic-support/student-services/student-consumer-information/information-licensed-careers.
Licensing information is also available from the following websites: American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (www.aicpa.org), National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (www.nasba.org), Institute of Internal Auditors (www.theiia.org), Institute of Management Accountants (www.imanet.org), and the Accreditation Council for Accountancy and Taxation (www.acatcredentials.org).
Many states have additional requirements directly related to CPA examination preparation. Students should consult their respective state Board of Accountancy for further details.
