Why major in Accounting?
In addition to the functional accounting knowledge taught in the accounting core classes, faculty emphasize other skills required to succeed in an accounting career. While classes still involve lectures, the core accounting curriculum is taught in an active learning environment where faculty and students are engaged in dialogue. Students take more responsibility for the learning process, while faculty often serve as "learning guides."
