Bachelor of Science in Accountancy
The Department of Accountancy offers an innovative curriculum that has these salient features:
- Active learning methods enhance development of critical thinking abilities. The curriculum places great emphasis on methods and skills of inquiry, analysis, judgment, and decision making.
- Accountancy courses integrate and reinforce general education requirements. The curriculum integrates, by extension and reinforcement in the major field, the content and skills learned in basic courses (e.g., English, Psychology, Economics).
- Introductory courses are broadly-based. The sophomore, two-course sequence provides a broad introduction to business and an expanded understanding of the role of information in business and society.
- A conceptual framework that cuts across functional areas. Accountancy courses in the curriculum are organized with an integrated conceptual structure common to all aspects of the discipline. This conceptual structure emphasizes the utility of information, together with information production and dissemination given various uses.
- Development and improvement of students’ interpersonal and communication skills. These skills are reflected in the fabric of the curriculum through the use of team projects, and written and oral reports.
- Integration of research findings into the curriculum. Accountancy courses include knowledge gained through current research and related implications for the practice of accountancy.
- A working partnership between academe and practice. The goal is to enable a continuous focus on the practical relevance of the educational process as well as a richer and more contemporary flavor to the content of course materials.
