Bachelor of Arts in Accounting Moravian University
Accounting is often called “the language of business.” The study of accounting prepares you to analyze and summarize economic activity for purposes of good decision-making in organizations. Upon graduation, you’ll be prepared for a career in public accounting, private industry, or nonprofit organizations. It’s also a good foundation for graduate study and examinations for professional certifications.
The 4+1 program provides our undergraduate students the opportunity to earn two degrees in one stop. Couple your undergraduate degree with any one of our four business master's degrees. You'll begin taking graduate-level courses in your senior year to help you transition into a full, final year of graduate studies.
An internship is an opportunity to apply theory to practice. It's a chance to gain perspectives on what you learn in the classroom and to do some self-reflection. You’ll get to "try a job on" and find out if it's right for you before you cross the graduation stage! Moravian students have interned at all of the Big 4 accounting firms, plus other national accounting firms such as Baker Tilly, Concannon Miller, and RKL LLP. For those not interested in pursuing a public accounting career, Moravian students have interned at Crayola, PPL Electric Utilities, Boys and Girls Club of Bethlehem, and more.
Students in all areas of study are encouraged to participate in research and explore their passions at Moravian. Opportunities consist of the Honors Program, InFocus, and Student Opportunities for Academic Research (SOAR).
Sophomore year is the perfect time for a study abroad opportunity, or, as we like to call it, a “Global Greyhound Trip.” The Elevate experience includes a faculty-led trip to one of our featured destinations—the Czech Republic or Costa Rica—at no extra cost to students!
