Bachelor of Science in Accounting
Accounting is the largest major in the College of Business, which is not surprising because there are many jobs for Accountants at good entry salaries.  Contrary to the popular impression, accountants must enjoy working with people in addition to numbers.   Accountants do not work just in Accounting firms.  Because there are so many different kinds of decision makers who use an organization's financial information, there are many different career paths in accounting.  In addition to working in Public Accounting and business organizations, accountants work for government, the arts, and non-profit organizations.  Many accountants choose to open their own private practice as well.
