At Marietta, you'll learn from faculty who are certified public accountants, and you will gain a foundation in business as well as the technical aspects of accounting. You’ll enjoy opportunities that you won’t find in many other undergraduate programs, such as working with outside practitioners as you conduct an independent research project; many of our students have presented and published their work. Our close ties to universities in China and Brazil also allow you to study and work in a major emerging market for up to a year.

The Accounting Program

At Marietta College

We have an extensive network of internship partners in public and private accounting, business and industry, nonprofits and government. Many students spend the spring of their junior year in a full-time internship; in all cases, these have led to job offers. Recent internship sites and employers include the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Caterpillar, Sherwin-Williams, Ernst & Young, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Ball Corporation.

Choose either our accounting major or our 150-hour public accounting major, which will qualify you to take the Certified Public Accountant Examination immediately upon graduation.

What You Can Do With an Accounting Degree

There are many internship opportunities for students in the major, and even more job possibilities. Marietta’s faculty have strong connections in the industry and they help students with introductions and they provide references. The College also offers the Robert Evans Internship Endowment, which awards one student every summer $5,000 to one qualified rising junior or senior who participates in an approved internship in a for-profit organization, specifically a major national or global organization.
