|1. Can I
double-major in another area in addition to Accounting as
part of my 128-credit hour bachelors degree?
Yes. You can double-major as long as the
other major is in something outside of the business-related
majors of Business Management, Entrepreneurship, Finance,
International Business, Industrial Management, and
Marketing. For example, you can have a double major in
Accounting and Psychology. However, as a liberal-arts
institution, business-related courses cannot be used as
general electives for students majoring in the Department of
Accounting. For those
interested in satisfying CPA licensing requirements, The Department
does now offer a new 150-credit hour dual major program in Accounting & Finance
which began in January 2010.

place during the summer after their junior year. Many
internship positions are obtained through our Career

elsewhere. Nearly all internships are paid positions,
and students can also earn academic credit by completing

5. Do I have to start the
accounting major during my freshman year in order to
graduate in four years?
No. While that is the best approach to
completing the degree since it best spreads out the course
requirements, it is possible to complete the degree
requirements in three years with careful planning.
What general electives in
other disciplines would best complement my
You should discuss this with
your faculty advisor since the answer depends,
