Penn State Erie, The Behrend College

The Accounting major provides an opportunity to pursue a unique program that integrates knowledge and skill in accounting and information management. It helps prepare students for positions in public accounting firms, corporations, and government, where accounting skills are essential. In addition, the accounting major provides the necessary academic training for students interested in administrative responsibilities in the area of accounting. The major meets the requirements for taking the CPA and CMA professional examinations.

For the B.S. degree in Accounting, a minimum of 120 credits is required. Each student must earn at least a grade of C in each 300- and 400-level course in the major field.
