Allentown, Pennsylvania
Bachelor of Science, Accounting

The Muhlenberg Accounting Program at Muhlenberg College develops communication and interpersonal skills for today's careers in accounting. Students develop ethical standards and advance leadership skills as well. Accounting students are encouraged to spend a semester studying in Washington D.C., or studying abroad. Students fulfill requirements in liberal arts as well as economics, finance, business, and elective courses for a broad, educational range. Muhlenberg College uses a course system intended to highlight the mastery of subject matter, instead of a credit system that measures achievement based on time spent in class. Courses are an entire learning experience, which may include computer work, group projects, lectures, discussions, recitation, and instruction. A typical full-time accounting student is enrolled in four class units per semester, which includes four courses, the activities those courses encompass, and the hours students spend studying outside of the classroom. Accounting courses cover written and oral communication, analysis of data, global issues, evaluation of ethical dilemmas, and the use of information technology for communicating financial information.
