Student Experience

It won’t surprise you to learn that accounting is all about balance.

At USF, though, it’s about more than balancing ledgers. We take pride in graduating well-rounded students who excel in more than just math.


  • You’ll spend time with your peers going over real-world financial data, and you’ll conduct audits the same way CPAs do.
  • You’ll evaluate case studies, perform deep-diving research, and hone your presentation skills.
  • And once you’ve completed your required courses, you can choose from electives ranging from federal taxation to non-profit accounting.

It’s not just theoretical instruction, either. Your professors are available to help prepare you for the CPA exam (and will have computer-based self-study programs to assist you, too).

Accounting is a major that prepares you for any number of careers. And your experience studying it at USF will reflect that dynamism and diversity.

It’s never too early to start looking at companies and to start thinking about your career, because in the end, I think it can lead to many opportunities."
