Department of Accounting


***Curriculum Changes***

If you have NOT taken ACC 3313, 3314 3363, or 3385, check with your advisor to see how the following changes may affect you:

Effective fall 2014, the Accounting Department has changed the prerequisite for ACC 3314 – Intermediate II, ACC 3363 – Governmental Accounting and ACC 3385 – Accounting Information Systems. You must now earn a B or better in ACC 3313 – Intermediate I.

 If you are taking Intermediate I-ACC 3313 for the FIRST time in fall 2014 or later, you must receive a B or higher to take 3314, 3363, and 3385.

If you are taking or have taken Intermediate I-ACC 3313 prior to fall 2014 and did not make a B or higher, you must complete the following courses by the end of summer 2015: 3314, 3363, and 3385.

Also, in order to register for those courses (if you received a C in Intermediate I-ACC 3313), you must contact the Accounting department at 245-2566 to request a prerequisite override.

Our mission is to offer quality, student–centered accounting programs for undergraduate and graduate students.  Our primary goal is to prepare students for careers in public accounting, industry, government, nonprofit, and other organizations.

We strive to:
  • Provide quality instruction and curricula that offer strong conceptual foundations and technical skills in accounting.  Our programs emphasize critical thinking, ethical decision-making, technology usage, and communication skills.  Our graduate programs augment the undergraduate degree and prepare graduates for professional careers in accounting including eligibility for licensure by State Boards of Public Accountancy. 
  • Engage in intellectual contributions in the areas of discipline–based scholarship, contributions to practice and learning and pedagogical research.
  • Provide service to our department, college, university, and other academic organizations.  This includes support of the accounting profession and accounting student organizations.  We also strive to build and maintain professional relationships among students, alumni, the accounting profession, and other stakeholders.
