College Announces New Certificate Program

Linfield College is offering a Post Baccalaureate Certificate in Accounting starting in the spring. It is designed as a 12 month program.

This certificate prepares participants to work in a variety of positions including public accounting, corporate accounting, government accounting and non-profit accounting. It is Linfield’s intention that the certificate will increase their students’ value in the job market with their increased knowledge of specialized accounting.

The certificate program will consist of 24 credit hours that are earned over 3 consecutive semesters. Online coursework allows participants to complete the required hours while also working fulltime. Graduates who combine the certificate with their standard bachelor’s degree will be prepared to take the Certified Public Accountant Exam and the Certified Management Accountant exam.

Students who do not have a business bachelor’s degree can take the certificate program as an intensive introduction into the field of accounting. The Linfield accounting programs are well respected by employers. The online aspect of this certificate program is another big draw.
