Minor in Accounting

Minor in Accounting

(This program is currently under review for discontinuance.)

The Minor in Accounting is designed to provide undergraduates with a focused exposure to a particular area of business practice rather than the broad exposure of the General Business Minor. As such, it can provide professional and technical skills needed for entry into specialized business employment for non-business majors or serve as an alternative to a double major for business majors wishing expertise in a second field.

All course work used to satisfy the requirements of the minor must be completed with a minimum grade point average of 2.0.
