Earn an Accounting Degree and put yourself on the CPA Track
If you’re considering a career as a CPA, you can complete your CPA education requirements along with your bachelor’s degree in four years. In addition to the accounting program’s standard 125 credits, you’ll earn another 25 credits to reach the 150 credits needed to be on the CPA track. You’ll also gain specialized knowledge in investments, operations, and international finance, and get real-world experience by completing a paid internship with a public accounting firm.
