Program description

Accounting Bachelor of ScienceFlorida Southern College offers a Accounting, Bachelor of Science programme. How would you like to have an impact on a company's future? Does the idea of classifying, analyzing, and interpreting the financial records of a company sound like an ideal career? Would you like to play a key role in company mergers and acquisitions? You may be an accountant in the making. As an accountant, you will learn how business works and which factors drive business and profits. You'll evaluate records drawn up by a bookkeeper and present the results of your investigation as losses and gains, leakages, economies, or changes in value. In essence, you'd be revealing the progress or failure of a business and also its future limitations and possibilities. The FSC accounting program prepares you to take the Certified Public Accounting (CPA) examination in the state of Florida (and many other states), and the Certified Management Accountant (CMA) examination. In addition, you can take 30 additional hours to meet the state requirement of 154 semester credit hours to become certified as a CPA at either the undergraduate level, the graduate level, or a combination of both. Exciting electives, such as Forensic Accounting and Internship in Accounting, help to prepare you for your particular career.
