Why Study Accounting in Addition to Your Major Courses?

Our accounting minor will allow you to enhance your degree through online accounting courses designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills essential to your career. The Minor in Accounting is offered entirely online, allowing you to remain active in your job, with your family, and in your community without worrying about taking on-campus courses. 

The specifics of forensic accounting, accounts receivable, accounting systems, and Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exams may only pertain to Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Data Analysis majors seeking employment at an accounting firm. However, mastery of basic accounting information and financial statements can prove vital to anyone involved in business. For example, the income statement is a simple document that nearly anyone in business should be able to decipher. Likewise, cash flow statements help accountants and non-accountants alike gauge the strength of a company’s financial position. Accounting is important because it is the language of business, and our Minor in Accounting can help you become fluent in that language. 

Whether your dream is to run a business or work in the finance industry, Liberty’s Minor in Accounting can help you gain experience and set you apart from others in the field. The Minor in Accounting pairs well with our Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, bachelor’s degree in healthcare administration, or bachelor’s degree in information systems
