What Can I Do With A Major In Accounting?


The Accounting Program at Northeastern State University is designed to prepare the accounting major for a career in the accounting profession, either public, private or governmental.

In addition, the accounting curriculum is designed to develop the accounting student's ability to work effectively, to become mentally disciplined, to communicate orally and in writing, to be aware of professional responsibilities, to develop an appreciation of the accountant's high standard of integrity and objectivity in reporting.

The Accounting Program is structured to provide the non-accounting major with basic accounting knowledge for use in a chosen major field and personal life.
