Requirements for the Accounting Option


Students may select from one of two tracks:

Track I: Public Accounting (36 credits)


Track I is for students interested in careers in any area of accounting: public, private, or government.

Elective Courses (8 credits)


The above core courses are preparatory for students seeking a public accounting license. Two elective courses are required to complete the Public Accounting track, but since Oregon requires 225 credit hours for Certified Public Accounting (CPA) licensing, all of the following elective courses are recommended. 

Note:


Public Accounting students may choose to take an upper division accounting elective or BA 324 (Business Communication) in place of the business administration core course, BA 385 (Principles of Finance).

 

Track II: Management Accounting (24 credits)


Track II is for students interested in accounting from a management and systems perspective. Students who would like to become Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) should see Track I.

Note:


Managerial Accounting Option students who take BA 353 may choose to take an upper division accounting elective or BA 324 (Business Communication) in place of the business administration core course, BA 385 (Principles of Finance).
