About the Program

This minor has two options: one for Business students and one for non-Business students.

With a minor in Accounting, students are prepared for a challenging and rewarding career in financial accounting, managerial accounting, accounting systems, taxation and auditing in corporate, not-for-profit, and government organizations. 

Focus of Study

The UCCS Accounting curriculum conveys a comprehensive understanding of the theories and concepts that underlie practice. This minor has a focus on logical reasoning and critical thinking, better enabling students to solve problems in accounting and make sound policy decisions in the context of social, legal, and political environments. 

Program Requirements

For Business Students:

College of Business undergraduate students are encouraged and can easily pursue a minor in our business specializations. All minors for business students are 9 credit hours and can be applied to business elective requirements as well as open electives (adding no additional credits or time to degree completion). Each minor allows a student to further their business knowledge and differentiate themselves from others by adding another credential to their resume.

For Non-Business Students:

The College of Business recommends all undergraduate students consider a business minor because no matter your major, you will likely be working in a business! Our minor for non-business students is broken into two parts - a business core curriculum (3 courses) that provides a base knowledge in business and then four subject-specific courses that allow students a deeper dive on a specific business discipline - giving students basic business knowledge as well as specialized business knowledge that can give them a competitive edge in the workplace. 

To declare the business minor, students must have a 2.7 cumulative CU GPA and have successfully passed ENGL 1310 and one college level math course (MATH 1040 is the lowest level math course accepted for this requirement).
