Accounting - the measurement, processing, and communication of financial information - is a growing field. Curry College's degree program is designed to provide a strong foundation for an accounting career, including preparation for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam.
In classes with busy, working adults just like yourself, you'll acquire the knowledge to pursue financial, government, corporate and forensic accounting as well as auditing and taxation careers.
The time required to complete your degree depends on the number of courses you take each term, which you can determine according to your personal and professional responsibilities. With new courses beginning at Curry every eight weeks, your progress can be as fast or as flexible as you choose.
Curry helps you fast-track your degree completion by offering:
Curry has no application fee, and you can enroll in most continuing education courses while you're compiling the application materials. Once complete, we promptly review your materials and mail an acceptance letter to you. If you apply for financial aid, Curry's Student Financial Services Office will notify you after you are accepted about eligibility for a financial aid award.
When possible, these courses should be completed first; however, the order in which courses are taken often depends on the course schedule for each term.
