Hi, Chelsea! I'm excited to see that you are interested in pursuing a career in accounting! #women-in-business
As for your question, it really depends on the school! In most situations, including my own, accounting is structured like a major within the Bachelor of Business Administration degree. Basically, what that means is, the classes required to take upper-level business courses are the same courses required to take upper-level accounting classes. At Gonzaga University, I graduated with my Bachelor of Business Administration degree with a major in accounting and a concentration in management information systems. Since the business field is so wide, most universities ask you to specialize (concentrate) - for example, you could choose marketing, economics, etc. So, in that sense, accounting is like a business concentration but it requires more classes, so it is considered a major. Regardless, it is very easy to take accounting classes and other business classes at the same time.
I hope that helps!
