Program Overview

Accounting is the language of business. This degree program prepares you for the workplace with a multifaceted understanding of financial information and use of resources in reaching an organization’s goals. Coupled with the requisite business-related courses, an accounting major opens avenues to established businesses, entrepreneurial possibilities and nonprofit pathways. With a wide array of both business and liberal arts courses, C-N graduates are prepared to be critical thinkers and problem solvers.

While the accounting major may be completed in 128 credit hours, students have the option to extend coursework through May term and summer classes. By accumulating 150 credit hours, graduates are eligible to sit for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam. In addition, if certain academic achievements are met, a senior undergraduate student may take a master’s level course in C-N’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) program.
