The Department of Accounting, Economics and Finance participates fully in the College of Business. Course offerings prepare students for a wide variety of professional opportunities. Departmental emphasis on quality instruction assures that students are exposed to the most up-to-date material and instructional techniques. The department also offers secondary teacher certification in economics. Consult the “Department of Education ” section of this catalog for specific requirements.

The study of accounting and finance leads exclusively to business-oriented degrees. In economics, students may pursue bachelor of arts, bachelor of science or bachelor of administration degrees.

The department offers a variety of scholarships at the undergraduate level, and teaching and graduate assistantships at the post-graduate level. Students are encouraged to apply for these awards.

The department offers a Cooperative Education (Co-op/Internship) Program for students majoring in any field within the department. The Co-op Program combines classroom study with a planned program of related work experience with industry or  government agencies. The program provides students opportunities to earn a portion of their college expenses while gaining work experience which enhances academic studies. The Co-op Program could extend the time necessary to complete a degree. Past co-op wages have averaged $8–$14 per hour.
