What You'll Learn

The accounting major offers two concentrations. In the public accounting program, get started on the path to certification as a public accountant in New York state. While the completion of the BS degree alone will not make you eligible to become a CPA, completion of this program together with Utica College's MBA in Professional Accounting fulfills New York State's 150-hour requirement, making you eligible to take the uniform CPA exam.

Choose private accounting and develop the skills to plan budgets, analyze costs, prepare financial statements, and more. Leadership, ethics, technological change, and a global perspective are woven into the curriculum by UC’s award-winning faculty. Learn more about UC’s accounting faculty here.
