Accounting, B.Sc.

  • Application Deadline
  • 48 months
Elizabethtown, PA, United States
Accounting graduates have a variety of initial career options including public accounting (tax or audit), corporate accounting, financial analysis, government and nonprofit accounting, banking, treasury operations or entry into graduate or law school. 


The Accounting program meets Pennsylvania's education requirements for the CPA exam. In order to become a licensed certified public accountant, most states require 150-credit hours, in addition to a bachelor's degree and passing the CPA exam.  At E-town College, your advisor in the Accounting program will individually coach you in pursuing your CPA license and help you complete all 150 credits during your four years, if you choose that career path. You can achieve this goal by earning course credits for acceptable performance on Advanced Placement (AP) exams, performing internships for course credit, completing summer courses and taking additional semester courses. We have prepared sample 4-year schedules to use as general guides for meeting the 150-hour CPA requirement. Another alternative for earning the extra credits is to pursue a Master's degree at another institution. Currently, firms are not giving preference to individuals with an advanced degree, so completing 150 credits in 4 years avoids a costly 5th year of education and gets you into a paying career a year earlier!
