The objective of the accounting program is to prepare the student to enter the accounting profession in a wide range of careers in accounting. The curriculum focuses on the development of technical knowledge and procedures to enable the accounting graduate to design, implement and maintain financial information systems for external and internal reporting. Analysis and interpretation of this information to provide tax, audit, and management advisory services are also emphasized.


BBA - Accounting

Graduates with 4-year degrees will find numerous opportunities for rewarding careers in public accounting, industry, finance, non-profit organizations and government. An accounting background also prepares graduates to enter non-business professions such as law, and is a sound basis for advancement to top-level management positions.


The Master of Accountancy program is designed to satisfy the education requirements to be licensed as a CPA in the State of Georgia. The MAcc prepares graduates for exciting careers with fast-track promotion opportunities in public accounting and other areas of business and government.

The MAcc program is 30 semester hours for qualified accounting majors. The program is available to other business and non-business graduates that meet entrance requirements. After completion of additional preparatory coursework and the 30 semester hours of graduate level courses, the education requirements to be licensed as a CPA in the State of Georgia will be met.

The 5-Year Track allows current GCSU accounting majors that meet entrance requirements for the MAcc to choose the “early enrollment” program during the senior year of their undergraduate program. This choice provides a seamless option for the student to complete the educational requirements for the BBA and the MAcc simultaneously and receive both degrees on completion.
