Accounting

Through NNU’s Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting, you will be provided with a general understanding of multiple areas of accounting and prepared for a career in public, corporate or governmental accounting. Besides developing a strong foundational knowledge in business and accounting with a Christian worldview, you will have many opportunities to gain experience through internships and by participating in the Accounting Club, the Financial Management Association and NNU’s award-winning chapters of the American Marketing Association and ENACTUS. Upon completing their degree, students will be prepared to embark on an accounting career or a management career with a strong accounting emphasis as well as prepared to attend graduate business and accounting programs.
NNU is one of the few Pacific Northwest universities to hold accreditation through the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs. Since 1997, graduating seniors consistently place in the 90th percentile or higher on the business field test.

45-60 credits are needed before you can begin with an accounting cohort. General education classes are offered both face-to-face and online.

Degree Requirements

75 credits; completion of the prescribed courses. A total of 150 semester hours of post high school work will be required to sit for the CPA examination in several states. For most students, this will take five years to complete. Some students may wish to pursue an MBA to meet this requirement.

I believe that NNU has given me opportunities that I would not have received elsewhere; opportunities to engage in real-world accounting practices through internships that will set me up for success in my future career as a CPA.
