Accounting Major (M)
Students receive in-depth training in accounting systems, state and federal laws, and IRS policies that will prepare them to serve in their vocations. They will be prepared to work within both businesses and government agencies. Options are available for completing a double major or combining an undergraduate and graduate program. Rigorous classes prepare students who wish to study for the Certified Public Accounting (CPA) Licensure exam.
Our dedicated accounting professors are committed to enhancing learning by working with students inside and outside of the classroom. Students are encouraged to participate in the on-campus, student-led, Accounting Club, which provides a network of support. CUW accounting graduates have had a 100% job placement rate for two years running.
By fulfilling all of the course requirements for the Bachelor's of Science in Accounting, students will be able to:
1. Create and analyze financial statements prepared in accord with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).
2. Understand and correctly use the basic terms and concepts of the accounting profession, as applied in actual accounting activities.
3. Demonstrate an understanding of the domestic and international economic and regulatory environment of business.
4. Demonstrate an understanding of Information Systems appropriate to entry-level business positions.
5. Demonstrate an understanding of the legal and ethical responsibilities of accountants, businesses and businesspersons from a Christian perspective.
Due to the rigor of the accounting profession, students who wish to register for ACCT 310 Intermediate Accounting I or higher accounting courses, will be required to have earned a minimum grade of "B" in ACCT 203 Financial Accounting and ACCT 223 Managerial Accounting. Each student will then be required to earn a minimum grade of C in each of their upper-level accounting courses to be awarded a bachelor's degree in accounting from Concordia University.
Students who wish to complete the 150-hours to qualify for CPA Licensure have several options - including an MBA - and should consult with their advisor to plan their course of study.
