BS in Accounting

University of Pittsburgh at Bradford

Want to be popular?Really popular? Graduate with a degree in accounting. Accountants are in high demand right now. And starting salaries are high. If that sounds like the career for you, then our accounting major is a perfect fit.

As an accountant, you'll do more than just track money. You will provide the analysis that will help businesses make financial decisions. And, you won't be stuck in a back room somewhere crunching numbers. Instead, you'll be front and center -- part of a management team.

As an accounting major, you'll have the chance to intern with a public accounting firm. That will look great on a resume. Once you earn your accounting degree, you'll be on track to get certified and become a CPA. And you'll be prepared to work just about anywhere. A small business or large corporation. For the government such as the FBI, IRS or the DEA. In an accounting firm. Or, you could be a forensic accountant and help detect fraud and money laundering.
