Note


Completion of this program of study results in a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in forensic accounting and prepares the graduate for a career in a broad range of organizational positions requiring accounting and forensic accounting skills.

Because the requirements for the Accounting major are a subset of the requirements for the Forensic Accounting Major, students may double major in Accounting and Forensic Accounting by completing the Forensic Accounting major and also ACCT 415 - Special Topics in Forensic Accounting  . Students with a Forensic Accounting major will be eligible to sit for the CPA exam, and the CFF and CFE exams.

To earn a Bachelor of Science in Forensic Accounting, students must complete a minimum of 120 credit hours. Students must also earn a major GPA of 2.0, and a cumulative GPA of 2.0.
