Bachelor of Science in Accounting

The B.S. Accounting degree at Redlands is positioned within the College of Arts and Sciences.  We combine the best of a liberal arts education with a launch into a flexible and promising career.  Recruiters from the professional firms are enthusiastic about our graduates because, Redlands students develop an ability to write clearly and persuasively.  They can speak with confidence and analyze multi-dimensional business problems.  Because class size is small, students are routinely asked to explain how, why and what if?
