Minor in Accountancy

The Minor in Accountancy is open to non-Business students only.  Accounting is often times referred to as the language of business. Non-business students with an accounting minor will bring an accounting mindset to their future careers. As they look to begin their careers in their chosen profession with hopes to become a manager or owner, the foundational knowledge of accounting will serve them well in making decisions regarding the operating, investing, and financing activities of their company. Additionally, basic understanding of profit and balance sheets, coming from the core accounting coursework, make a student more knowledgeable in general about world events and corporate operations.


Minor Requirements: 15 completed hours with a 2.0 GPA.  12 of the 15 hours must be taken in residence.
