Accounting Minor


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Majors, Minors and Graduate Programs Alphabetically

Advisement for the minor is available from the Accounting and Legal Studies  Department.

The accounting minor is open to any non-accounting major. The program is designed for students seeking a solid accounting foundation to pursue careers in organizations large or small where skills in accounting and budget administration are important.

The general track fulfills some course requirements set by the Maryland State Board of Public Accountancy to sit for the CPA exam and set by the Institute of Management Accountants to sit for the CMA exam.

The fraud track provides a useful behavioral and analytical understanding of information for those interested in working as entrepreneurs, criminal psychologists, attorneys, internal auditors or other compliance related fields and assists in obtaining related certifications. In addition to a minor in accounting, students completing the fraud track also earn the fraud certificate.

 

  • All courses in the minor must be completed with a C or better, including transfer credits.
  • No course may be taken pass/fail.
  • All 300- and 400-level courses must be taken at Salisbury University.
  • The General Track minor consists of 18 credits, any of which may be used to fulfill other Perdue School requirements.
  • The Fraud Track minor consists of 21 credits, any of which may be used to fulfill other Perdue School requirements.
  • The Perdue School does not permit course substitution; only those courses listed as fulfilling the minor are accepted.
  • Check the courses section of the catalog for prerequisite information.
  • Students must declare the accounting minor using proper University procedures.
  • Only those courses listed as fulfilling the minor are accepted.
