The Accounting department offers two major concentrations in Accounting, as well as an Accounting minor.

  • Traditional Accounting
  • Public Accounting, Major Concentration

As an Accounting student at CSB+SJU, you will have the opportunity to pick the concentration that fits best with your career goals. All states, including Minnesota, require 150 credit hours of education to obtain the CPA license. Our Public Accounting concentration has many preparatory courses to help students do well on the Certified Public Accounting (CPA) exam. The Traditional Accounting concentration provides a broader, more general view of accounting and is especially useful for students who double major or study abroad. Additionally, students in the Traditional Accounting concentration are able to sit for the CPA exam with no extra coursework.

Many Accounting students pursue internships during their junior year. Internships not only give students hands-on experience but allows them to test their probable career path while still in college. Plus, many of the internships are well-paid.
