Accounting Minor

Students who are interested in accounting have the opportunity to not only major but minor in the field. The program consists of 29 credit hours (10 courses) that include courses in statistics, operations, economics, mathematics, and of course accounting.

The courses include:

  • ACCT 211 Financial Accounting*
  • ACCT 212 Managerial Accounting*
  • ACCT 361 Intermediate Accounting I
  • BUSI 113 Business Statistics or Equivalent (PSYC 220 or SOCI 230)*
  • ECON 201 Principles of Microeconomics*
  • ECON 202 Principles of Macroeconomics*
  • MATH 104 Quant Methods for Business*

Plus two of the following courses:

  • ACCT 362 - Intermediate Accounting II (Prerequisite: ACCT 361)
  • ACCT 371 - Personal Income Tax (Prerequisite: ACCT 211, Junior Standing)
  • ACCT 372 - Cost Accounting (Prerequisite: ACCT 212, ECON 201, Junior Standing)
  • ACCT 462 - Applications of Advanced Accounting (Prerequisite: ACCT 361)
  • ACCT 471 - Corporate Taxation (Prerequisite: ACCT 371)

*Courses are required as part of the 'Professional Core' for School of Business students. This reduces the minor credit load to nine credit hours (3 courses) for AU Biz students.

Students must complete at least half the course work at Alfred University and achieve a grade point average of at least 2.0 "C" in courses submitted for completion of the minor.

A maximum of 30 credits in courses offered by the School of Business may be taken by non-business students.
