The 122 hour B.S. in Accounting Degree is designed to prepare students for positions in accounting, internal auditing, tax work, budgeting, and cost control.

Graduates meet the educational requirements for the Certified Management Accountant (CMA) and Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) examinations, as well as many federal and state civil service examinations. Students are also well prepared for graduate work in accounting. New York State requires 150 credit hours for new practitioners to be licensed as a Certified Public Accountant.

Saint Rose also offers the 150-hour dual degree program, where students can earn their BS and MS in Accounting in just five years. The program combines both courses of study in a logical, continuous curriculum that fulfills the 150 credit hours required by New York State for licensure as a CPA.
