Accounting Minor

Students majoring in business may pursue an accounting minor. The goal of the minor is to provide a secondary area of expertise for students majoring in business information systems, entrepreneurial management, finance (finance with real estate emphasis), marketing or supply and value chain management. By combining one of these majors with a minor in accounting, the student is prepared for a greater number of career opportunities and gains more flexibility. In addition, students majoring in other areas of business sometimes take electives in accounting. The designation of an accounting minor provides such students with additional evidence of subject matter expertise. The minor in accounting requires 18 semester hours of coursework. Once a student matriculates at TCU, all coursework in the accounting minor must be completed at TCU.
