The Bachelor of Business Administration in accounting from Sam Houston State University prepares graduates to approach, analyze, and shape financial practices within a business organization and communicate complex ideas effectively.
The Texas State Board of Public Accountancy requires CPA examination applicants to have completed 150 semester hours of college credit, so completion of the BBA alone will not qualify you to take the CPA examination. Pursuing the Master of Science in accounting in addition to the BBA will satisfy the requirement.
To major in accounting, a student must maintain a minimum overall grade point average of at least 2.5 and earn a “C” or better in each of the 10 accounting courses (30 credit hours).
At least 50 percent of the required business curriculum for the BBA degree must be taken in residence at Sam Houston State University.
The department assists students with paid internship opportunities that offer students the chance to work in the public accounting profession while earning academic credit. Eligible students compete for available internship positions during the spring of their junior year. In addition, there are other internship opportunities in industry accounting.
