The Department of Accounting at the University of Central Arkansas has as its primary mission the provision of a high quality undergraduate major. The curriculum is designed to provide students with a strong theoretical foundation such that they will be well prepared to become life-long learners who can evolve professionally with the inevitable career changes they will encounter.
Accounting graduates are prepared for entry-level positions in public accounting, industry, government, and not-for-profit organizations as well as entry into graduate programs in accounting, business administration, or law. Local, regional, and international firms regularly hire accounting graduates from UCA. In recent years, UCA accounting graduates have been honored for receiving the highest score in the state on the CPA Examination.
