Accounting as a Second Degree

If you have already earned a college degree, you may still earn an Accounting degree as part of a post-baccalaureate education. This option is particularly attractive to professionals looking to move up within their organization, or anyone seeking a new career. Since our courses are offered during the day, evenings and online, you can complete the Accounting degree on your own schedule.

The course requirements for the post-bacc degree in Accounting depends on your educational background. Students with a business degree from an AACSB-accredited college must complete the 30 hours of upperlevel accounting courses. Students without a degree from an AACSB-accredited college must also complete the Pre-Business and Professional Business core. Additionally, UALR requires a minimum of 30 hours in residence at UALR (which is normally satisfied by the accounting courses) and completion of a course in U.S. History or U.S. Government as part of the student overall collegiate record.

Students who do not want to earn the complete degree may pursue the 18-hour Certificate in Accounting.
