Accounting Degree - Online and Campus Programs
Accounting Degrees to Start Your CareerMost accounting jobs require at least a bachelor's degree in accounting, which typically takes about four years. Accounting programs offer classes in basic accounting, business, taxation, communication, economics, and math. If you're interested in increasing your job opportunities, it may be a good idea to earn certification as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). Once you've started your career, you can continue your education with a two-year master's degree in accounting, which could include coursework such as international accounting, financial accounting, and fraud prevention. As more and more companies use computerized accounting, you may also have to take courses in accounting software and technology. Depending on your interests, you could work in a variety of subspecialties including:
