The accounting minor offers students a broad-based education in accounting, emphasizing a particular field within this discipline, such as financial accounting, managerial accounting, tax accounting, or governmental accounting.
The Accounting Department requires 60 credit hours (junior standing) before taking upper-division accounting courses. At least 12 hours of accounting courses in the minor must be completed in residency at MSU Denver. In order to meet the 18 credit hours requirement for a minor, a business major seeking a minor in accounting will have ACC 2010 - Accounting Principles I and ACC 2020 - Accounting Principles II waived from the Business Core requirements.
A grade of “C” or better is required for an accounting course to count towards a minor.
