Undergraduate Certificate in Accounting

A condensed certificate program designed to prepare undergraduate accounting students for the CPA, CMA, or a graduate accounting program.


The undergraduate certificate program in accounting is designed to enhance students' accounting knowledge, expand their career opportunities, fulfill the accounting education requirements for the CPA or CMA examination, or satisfy the admission requirements for one of our graduate accounting programs. Students will gain an expansive knowledge of state and federal accounting standards and information systems through both theoretical and practical applications.


Please note that some courses taken as part of certificate programs will have prerequisites. These prerequisites must be satisfied (through transfer of equivalent coursework or through taking the courses at Golden Gate) before the certificate courses can be completed.
