Accounting Program Overview


As an accounting major at The University of Texas at Dallas, you learn to prepare, analyze and communicate relevant information for making business decisions. Through accounting, you will focus on an organization’s resources and how efficiently it performs. The discipline of accounting can be subdivided into career paths that align with our graduate-degree concentration: corporate accounting, auditing, tax accounting and internal auditing.

A unique benefit of our accounting program is that you can combine your undergraduate work with our specialized master’s program, a beneficial option if you wish to complete the 150-hour CPA exam requirement of most states. As a full-time student, you will be able to complete the combined accounting degree program in five years or less and should consider applying for one of our specialized programs, the Professional Program in Accounting or Internal Audit Excellence Partnership program.
