Accounting Honors Curriculum
The Accounting Honors curriculum is challenging and the class sizes are small, less than 30 students. This makes for a learning environment that emphasizes active discussion and advanced topic coverage. Written and oral communication is an important part of many of the courses in the program. Full-time faculty holding a Ph.D. teach the courses and are nationally known researchers in the areas they teach.
The Department of Accounting and MIS offers each of the following honors courses once per year. This is important when planning internships or study abroad. We provide a typical schedule for a student wishing to obtain an Accounting BSBA with Honors in four years.
One option that is often quite appealing to Accounting undergraduates who begin at OSU with significant amount of EM college credits is the Combined BSBA/Masters of Accounting (MAcc). Within only four years, the Combined Program allows you to (1) deepen your understanding of accounting, (2) gain access to MBA courses, (3) obtain a Masters degree, and (4) qualify for the CPA examination. Students interested in the Combined Program should seek advice from the Graduate Programs Office. It is recommended that Accounting Honors students who want to pursue a Masters degree, but are also interested in an undergraduate second major or minor, choose to enter the MAcc program at OSU as a fifth year, in order to receive the most out of the educational opportunities from both programs.
