Why study Accounting at M.C.?

The Minor in Accounting is designed to supplement a student's preparation in a major field. It provides additional depth in the field and background for further study.

The minor in Accounting is not open to students majoring in Finance/Accounting.

To be eligible to take the CPA exam, an individual must have earned a degree from an accredited college or university and complete a total of 150 semester hours with certain designated hours in accounting and in business.

Several universities offer Master of Accountancy programs tailored for liberal arts college graduates; the admission standards of these programs require no additional accounting courses beyond what is offered through the accounting minor at Maryville College. Students interested in accounting, who have completed a Maryville College degree and accounting minor requirements may be eligible for the 15-month Master of Accountancy program available at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville upon completion of 3 additional accounting courses at U.T. in the summer following graduation.

Maryville College Works is a comprehensive career preparation program that is integrated into the College’s four-year liberal arts curriculum. Key components include assessment, advising, networking and professional experiences.
