Bachelor of Science in Forensic Accounting


E-Learning Portal

Course Overview

Forensic accounting degree and certificate programs are steadily increasing due to a change in finance and business laws and regulations, as well as a growing awareness of financial crimes. Bachelor’s degrees and graduate certificate programs are available to prepare individuals for a forensic accounting career in the private and government sectors. Students can pursue a specialized bachelor’s degree in forensic accounting or a more generalized business bachelor’s degree in accounting. Both types of programs cover general accounting principles, auditing and business ethics, although students in a business administration program take general business courses in economics, management and statistics.
