California University of Pennsylvania is offering new business degree options in corporate communication and accountancy.
n An undergraduate concentration in corporate communication is a specialized option within interdisciplinary studies in business and commerce, through which students master basic principles in accounting, economics, finance, management, marketing and other business disciplines, then build skills in oral communication, business writing, public relations and digital media. The four-year, on-campus program begins this fall and leads to a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (B.S.B.A.) degree.
n A master’s degree in accountancy (M.Acc.) program builds accounting knowledge and skills for individuals seeking higher-level positions as auditors or accountants, and prepares students to sit for the exam required to become a certified public accountant. Courses help students obtain the 150 credit-hours required to become a CPA. The 30-credit degree can be completed in four semesters of full-time study, or on a part-time schedule. Students may enroll now; online classes begin in Summer 2020.
