Requirements for the Minor in Accounting

Students can choose from two tracks: financial or managerial. The financial accounting minor is appropriate for students interested in a career in financial services or a related industry.  The managerial accounting minor is appropriate for students interested in a career in industries other than financial services or in non-profit organizations.

For non-business majors, five courses are required, as follows:

  • Financial Accounting track: ACC 201, ACC 211, ACC 301, ACC 302, and either ACC 401 or ACC 411
  • Managerial Accounting track: ACC 201, ACC 202 or ACC 211, ACC 311, ACC 321, and ACC 401

For business majors (B.S. in Economics and Business Administration), the course requirements are the same as above, except for the following:

  • Students interested in the Financial Accounting track will need to take both ACC 401 and ACC 411 (ACC 211 is substituted for ACC 202 as a major requirement).
  • Students interested in the Managerial Accounting track will need to take both ACC 202 and ACC 211.

The extra course required for business majors is due to the college policy that only one course can be double-counted toward the major and minor.  Neither minor is intended to prepare students for the CPA exam.
