TDP - Bachelor of Business Administration


The Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) with an Accounting major is designed to give the student an understanding of the theory of accounting as it is used in our society. A student's coursework may lead toward a business, public, or governmental accounting career. An accounting education provides an excellent background for non-business professions, such as law, and is helpful for advancement to top level management positions.

All majors are required to complete a series of courses covering the field of business. Also available is an opportunity to participate in an internship program. Internships are not required, but are encouraged. Previous students have interned with "Big Four," national and local public accounting firms, and industries such as Georgia Pacific, Home Depot, and Turner Broadcasting, to name a few.

A student interested in an accounting major must first be admitted to the University's Franklin College of Arts and Sciences as a pre-business major. On-line information and applications for UGA admission are available at During completion of specific courses and other requirements, a student may then apply to the Terry College as an accounting major. Entrance requirements, prerequisites, and application procedures are listed at the Terry College of Business Undergraduate home page. Once admitted to the major, students will be advised within the Tull School. For specific information on the accounting requirements, see the general requirements for the BBA degree in the UGA bulletin.
