A Balanced and Marketable Accounting Education

Stay on top of today’s ever-changing business environment by developing highly valued skill sets. In the Accounting major you’ll study statistics, economics, computers and finance. The major consists of 13 courses (52 credit hours), and students can intern at a variety of local businesses as well as with organizations in major cities. Accounting graduates are eligible to sit for the N.C. CPA exam in the final semester of the program.

The Accounting minor, which is four courses or 16 credit hours, provides non-Accounting majors with basic concepts and tools that can be applied to enhance the application and marketability of their liberal arts education.

Graduates of Guilford’s Accounting Department pursue careers in public, industrial and governmental accounting. Others join the ranks of management in various corporations and nonprofits organizations.

The B.S. in Accounting and its minor prepare students for dynamic business environments through hands-on learning and a thorough study of core accounting concepts.
