Curriculum & Requirements
Professional Accounting Major, Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration (BAB)
The Professional Accounting major is designed to rigorously prepare students for careers in public accounting (CPA) firms, industry, government and not-for-profit organizations. Several professional certificates are available to professional accounting graduates who pass competitive examinations and meet certain other requirements. For example, the Certified Public Accountant certificate, Certified Management Accountant license or Certified Internal Auditor certificate provide professional recognition to the accountants who successfully complete a comprehensive professional examination and meet an experience requirement.
Requirements to sit for the Uniform Certified Public Accountant Examination vary from state to state. Experience requirements for the license also vary from state to state. Therefore, students must obtain current information from the Board of Accountancy within the state from which they seek licensure.
- students must be formally admitted to the Business Undergraduate Program or officially declared as a minor before enrolling in business classes in the major (see Business Administration Course Enrollment Policies for more information).
- ECON 200 and ECON 201 are considered supporting courses and may be used to fulfill BACRs as well as requirements for the Business Administration degree; however, these courses are not counted twice toward the total of 180 credits for graduation.
Grade Requirements for Graduation: a minimum grade ≥C in each course required for the major and a minimum GPA ≥2.5 for all upper division Business Administration core courses as well as required and elective courses taken to fulfill requirements for the major area.
