Why Choose an Accountancy Minor?

The Accountancy Minor complements major fields of study in other departments and enhances students' major and career goals with a specialization in accounting. In addition, it allows students to choose a concentration in a particular area of accounting such as financial, managerial, or tax.

The Accounting Minor consists of six courses, or 18 credit hours. Four of the six courses are required, and provide students with the accounting basics essential to all areas of accounting. The two electives can then be tailored to the particular interests of the students.
