Accounting

The Accounting program introduces students to the analytical, decision-making, and communication skills needed to succeed in today’s corporate world.

What You'll Study

The Accounting curriculum will ensure that students receive a strong foundation in accounting, supporting coursework in finance, computing, marketing, money and banking, and economics. Accounting majors considering sitting for the CPA (Certified Public Accountant) licensure exam are encouraged to complete a minor in finance. 

Flagler College's current accounting curriculum is designed to meet the requirements to qualify to take the CPA examination (i.e., 120 hours), but not for licensure (i.e., 150 hours).

For details on the program and CPA Licensure requirements, you may visit the course catalog.

Practical Experience

Accounting majors learn the fundamentals of financial and managerial accounting through practical applications. Students receive instruction from experienced faculty, many of whom are also practicing CPAs.  Students have the opportunity to pursue internships with private accounting firms, in the public sector, or in government.
