Accounting

The accounting department at the University of Richmond is well known throughout the country for producing especially high quality graduates each year.

Some students attend graduate school in business, law or the liberal arts.

While pursuing an accounting degree at the University of Richmond, students are taught to understand accounting and its many complexities rather than being forced to memorize purely mechanical procedures. The entire accounting program stresses the theory behind accounting so that graduates will have the basis of knowledge to begin a lifelong career.
