Accounting Major

Beginning 2015-2016, the College of Business changed its degree program to reflect the addition of majors. Previously, students who completed the program received a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, and were able to identify an area of specialization, but not a major. The revised program allows students to major in one of three areas: Accounting, Business Administration, or Marketing. Under the revised program, students still receive a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, but have a major specified on their transcripts.
