Accounting graduates have flexibility in career choices due to the wide variety of accounting specializations and the breadth of accounting applications. The program prepares graduates for careers in public accounting, accounting within business entities, or accounting within governmental or not-for-profit agencies. Accounting serves as an excellent background for students planning to pursue graduate studies or careers in law.

The Texas Public Accountancy Act of 1991 requires that a CPA candidate sitting in Texas for the CPA Exam for the first time as of May, 1998 have (1) a baccalaureate degree with any major, (2) two basic accounting courses plus an additional 30 hours of accounting, (3) 20 hours of business related courses, (4) an approved 3 semester hour ethics course, and (5) a total of 150 unduplicated college transcript hours. The candidate is NOT required to complete a master's degree. Contact the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy (512-505-5599) for further information about possible exemptions/grace period.

The accounting program offers sufficient number of required accounting courses and accounting electives to meet the above mentioned requirements for sitting in the Uniform Certified Public Accountants examination. The accounting program also provides the basic courses related to preparing for the Certified Management Accountants exam as well as other specialized accounting certification examinations.
