SAM AND IRENE BLACK SCHOOL OF BUSINESS
Accounting Minor, 20 credits
The accounting minor requires students to complete 16 additional credits in accounting beyond the 4 credits required in ACCTG 211. It is designed to introduce students to advanced topics in financial and cost accounting, as well as to the basics of income tax accounting for individuals. This minor can provide an enhanced understanding of accounting information flows, costing systems, and the general tax environment to students majoring in other business areas and it is a particularly good compliment to the finance and management information systems majors. On its own,it will not generally enable students to meet the requirements for professional licensing in accounting.
A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.
