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.
