Professional Accountancy (B.P.A.)


Return to Programs Return to: Programs

The objective of the Bachelor of Professional Accountancy (B.P.A.) curriculum sequence is to prepare the student for a career in professional accounting. This program would satisfy the 150-hour (five year) requirement to sit for the CPA examination. It would also provide in-depth preparation beyond the B.B.A. in accounting  for other certification examinations–or for those who desire additional preparation in a specific area of accounting.

A minor is not required.

Bachelor of Professional Accountancy (B.P.A.)


Every candidate must earn at least a total of 150 credits, including 42 credits at the 300-400 level, complete university Basic Skills  and General Education   requirements, and must satisfy the following:

48 credits must be earned in courses that are not in the College of Business and Management.
