Accounting

A degree in accounting from St. Joseph’s College will provide the knowledge and skills necessary for a variety of rewarding careers, including forensic accounting, public accounting, auditing, taxation, managerial and corporate accounting, financial planning, government and not-for-profit accounting, information technology and consulting.

In small classes, students learn from accounting faculty who possess extensive professional experience. They meet with full-time faculty each semester to schedule courses and to plan for internships, graduate studies and career success.

For those interested in becoming a certified public accountant (CPA), SJC offers two options.

  • Qualified candidates who are accepted into the graduate program may complete the licensure-qualifying five-year B.S./M.B.A. in Accounting.
  • Students may complete the B.S. in Business Administration with a major in Accounting and then pursue SJC’s licensure-qualifying M.B.A. in Accounting.

Accounting graduates may look forward to joining the many successful SJC accounting alumni who hold prestigious positions at PricewaterhouseCoopers, Deloitte LLP, Grant Thornton LLP and other public accounting firms, as well as in Fortune 500 companies and in local, state and federal governments.
