Forensic Accounting

Become a force for modern justice by spotting and stopping financial crimes.

Students working together in classroom.

Learn how to identify and investigate fraudulent financial activities, develop evidence, and give expert evidence at the eventual trial.

As a future forensic accountant, you’ll be trained to the legal standard of “suitable for use in a court of law.” In addition to the core business and accounting courses, the forensic accounting curriculum includes criminal justice training in law, white collar crime, criminal procedure, and more.

The forensic accounting major is one of four forensic programs at the university. That means you’ll uniquely learn among students developing skills and exploring concepts you could later see, and potentially leverage, in a professional setting. A specialized laboratory dedicated to forensics puts modern evidence-gathering techniques in students’ hands, familiarizing you with analysis, methods, and the language of various forensic fields beyond the classroom.
