B.S. in accounting

The major in accounting is designed to prepare students for entry-level positions in accounting. This program will qualify graduates to sit for the Uniform Certified Public Accountant Examination in Virginia. However, certification requires 150 hours of college credits. Most public accounting firms give hiring preference to applicants who have completed the full 150 hours prior to starting work.


Our program is designed to prepare you for successful completion of the CPA exam and to land great accounting jobs. We maintain a close partnership with the professional community to ensure our curriculum is based on market demands.
