Accounting is certainly a timeless profession, but it’s also one that’s evolving and adapting rapidly in the Digital Age. Chaminade’s Accounting major is designed to prepare you for those new challenges and new opportunities, offering a rock-solid foundation of coursework, an ethical framework, hands-on learning, and analysis on developments and trends in the profession.
So why pursue accounting?
Accounting is often referred to as the “language of business.” And its fluent speakers—accountants—are tasked with everything from preparing, examining and ensuring the accuracy of financial documents to making key financial recommendations based on thorough reviews.
Accountants are in high demand and they’re needed in just about every sector, including in government and the for- and not-for-profit worlds. That’s why we stress experiential learning before graduation day, including with several civil service projects geared toward community needs. Our free tax clinics, for example, allow students to get experience with real clients. Accounting majors help families sign up for student aid through a separate project.
Experiential Learning Opportunities
The FAFSA project involves communication majors and accounting students. Help low-income and immigrant families fill out FAFSA forms, enabling these students a chance at a college education.
Tax Clinics allow accounting students to get work experience with real-life clients, and at the same time assist homeless, low-income or immigrant families.
Our faculty members are leaders in their fields. They believe in the power of personal experience—stressing mentorship, collaboration and project-based learning inside and outside the classroom.
