Request Information


Accounting is one of the top 20 industries in the Metro area and is expected to have continued job growth over the next 15 years. In the current era of global competition, the management of costs is vital to ensuring organizations’ and corporations’ financial viability and profitability. Accounting professionals are therefore sought after to implement effective cost control measures across all sectors of the economy.

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Accounting program offers students the opportunity to develop a solid understanding of the interconnected functional areas of organizations.  Students acquire the skills to prepare, analyze and present financial statements that facilitate decision making.

The major is designed to meet the undergraduate degree requirements for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA.) exam for DC, Maryland and Virginia. Graduates will need to accrue an additional 30 credit hours before sitting for the exam. With a strong foundation in ethics, business law, and regulatory knowledge, the curriculum also covers forensic accounting, which helps prepare students to be Certified Fraud Examiners (CFEs).
