The Bachelor of Science in Accounting is a four-year degree that includes study of all functional areas of accounting including financial, managerial, cost, federal income tax accounting, accounting information systems, and auditing. Graduates of the program are fully prepared to enter accounting careers in the corporate, governmental, and not-for-profit areas. The program consists of 128 hours of coursework, and positions those graduates who desire licensure as Certified Public Accountants to continue their studies.

In addition to the general education courses required by the University, the Bachelor of Science in Accounting curriculum requires a set of preprofessional skills courses in the areas of communication, mathematics and economics. Many of these courses also satisfy certain general education requirements. Students also progress through a series of courses in core business areas such as accounting, management, marketing and finance. In their junior year, students begin their intermediate accounting studies, and end the program with a series of advanced accounting courses including auditing, advanced financial accounting, cost accounting, and income tax accounting.

“As a transfer student, I was a little uncertain about my choice of major in Accounting. After speaking to several faculty and learning more about the wide range of future options an accounting degree will give me, I was sold, not to mention the fact that I could earn both a BS and Master degree in only three years at Pacific. I came to college to position myself for greater financial stability and the career pathways that Accounting offers me have shown that I can realize that goal. Combined with my experiences on Pacific’s Speech and Debate team, where I have developed stronger research and critical thinking skills while polishing my communication abilities, I am very confident about where my career is heading. Pacific has prepared me to take on a high-pressure career with ease! Through a 4-week remote summer 2020 internship with KPMG, I am on my way to the CPA track and have accepted a full-time offer to join the firm next Fall 2021.”
