Accounting Minor


The Paul Merage School of Business faculty offer an undergraduate minor in Accounting consisting of seven upper-division courses. In addition, two lower-division introductory accounting courses, one lower-division microeconomics course and one lower-division single variable calculus course are prerequisites to the minor program.

In establishing the undergraduate minor in Accounting, the faculty anticipated two types of students to be drawn to courses in accounting: (1) students preparing for careers in accounting or in other fields that require some knowledge of accounting, and (2) students planning to pursue a graduate degree in accounting who wish early guidance and undergraduate work appropriate to this career objective.

Students are eligible to apply for the minor in Accounting if they have upper-division standing and have completed Management 30A and 30B with a grade no lower than B (3.0) and all other prerequisite courses with a grade no lower than C (2.0). Completion of the prerequisite courses does not guarantee admission to the minor in Accounting. Admission is on a competitive basis and students must submit an application, transcripts and a statement of purpose. Applications are accepted on a quarterly basis. Interested students are encouraged to obtain further information from the Undergraduate Programs Office, 226 Multipurpose Academic and Administrative Building.
