Accounting is more than bookkeeping or number crunching. With the Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Penn State Behrend, you’ll develop your talents as a strategic business adviser—one who can think critically, solve problems, and anticipate organizational challenges.
And since there isn’t an industry that doesn’t employ accountants, you’ll have a wide variety of career options. You can prepare for a traditional role of CPA or auditor, or use your Accounting degree as a foundation in fraud detection, forensic investigation, financial services, law, underwriting or actuarial science, and more.
Why Penn State Behrend?
You’ll learn in the Black School of Business, which integrates training in accounting alongside core business functions like management information systems and finance. And you’ll be taught by experienced faculty in small classes—meaning your professors will know you and your goals.
You’ll also have plenty of real-world experience—through projects working with partners in the community, internships, or undergraduate research projects. Accounting students also have the opportunity to show their research at professional meetings and conferences.
