Requirements for a major and typical program of courses are listed below. This is a possible plan of study, but it need not be followed in the same order by every student.

Freshman Year

Sophomore Year


* Candidates for the B.B.A. may substitute Introduction to Statistics (ST 210 ) for EC 220  if and only if the student also successfully completes Calculus II (MA 252 ) or Econometrics (EC 420 ).

** Students concentrating in finance must complete FI 320  prior to the fall semester of the junior year.

*** Students concentrating in business economics must complete EC 301  or EC 302  prior to the fall semester of the junior year.

Major in Accounting

Students majoring in accounting must take seven upper-level accounting courses: AC 301 , AC 302 , AC 311 , AC 401 , AC 402 , AC 412 , and AC 421 . Six of these seven courses must be taken within the Accounting Department at Loyola University Maryland.


Course requirements for the CPA exam vary by state. In order to choose the appropriate courses, accounting majors should contact their major advisors and reference the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy website, nasba.org.

150-Hour CPA Requirement

Students who plan to sit for the Certified Public Accounting (CPA) examination in a state with a 150-credit-hour educational requirement must complete additional coursework beyond the undergraduate accounting degree. Loyola offers the Master of Accounting (M.Acc.) to assist students in meeting this requirement. The M.Acc. program offers a 10-course, 30-credit-hour cohort program which can be delivered in a full-time (three semester) or part-time format. Consult the graduate catalogue for more information about the M.Acc. program.
