Accounting majors have opportunities to learn about the profession through discussions with alumni, faculty, and leaders in the field. Students interested in earning a degree in accounting must complete 67 - 68 units plus an additional seven units in general education.
Accounting minors are required to take 22 - 27 units. Minors with a managerial or financial emphasis require up to 23 units while the minor for non-business majors requires up to 27 units. Explore the courses you can take for the managerial emphasis, financial emphasis, or non-business major.
