About This Program

With the U.S. Department of Labor predicting that accounting jobs will grow 11 percent between now and 2024, there’s no better time to become a Springfield College accounting major.

Our broad accounting curriculum—including courses in management, communications, ethics, and data analytics—allows students to gain knowledge in all aspects of the accounting field. Accounting students learn effective strategies for assembling, analyzing, and reporting financial data for a wide range of entities. Internships offer the opportunity for students to put their knowledge into action.

Students graduate ready to start their careers in for-profit or nonprofit organizations; continue their education in graduate school; or obtain professional accounting certifications such as the certified public accountant (CPA) and the certified management accountant (CMA).
