Accounting majors get hired. Accountants today are in high demand. And Bellarmine accounting majors learn more than just accounting. They learn business expertise, communication skills, ethical awareness and the interpersonal acumen to bring high value to any organization.

The core of the Bellarmine accounting major is a four-year, 120-hour program that provides the knowledge and skills necessary for a successful accounting career.

Many students choose to obtain the 150-semester-hours required to take the Uniform CPA exam. Bellarmine offers several 150-hour alternatives, including supplemental minors, dual majors, or a dual BA/MBA.

If you already hold a degree in another field, you may wish to pursue our Certificate in Professional Accounting.

Thanks to an increasing demand for accountants and Bellarmine’s highly regarded accounting program, majoring in accounting is your ticket to a bright future.
