Suggested Minor*:

Accounting majors who are considering sitting for the CPA exam are especially encouraged to complete a minor in finance and complete additional coursework offered to meet the exam requirements.  Because BUS 301 & BUS 302 are part of the major requirements, accounting majors would only need four additional courses to complete the minor.  These courses would typically be completed over the summer semester.  A minor in marketing is also available, and only five additional courses would be required to complete that option.
