Department of Accounting and Business Law

Overview

The Department of Accounting and Business Law at LSU Shreveport offers a quality program leading to a bachelor's degree in accounting. All full-time faculty members who teach accounting courses are Certified Public Accountants (some in inactive status), and most hold a terminal degree in their field.

Our faculty members have experience in various fields of business, providing an excellent mix between academics and the "real world." Faculty members are actively involved in professional organizations, such as the Society of Louisiana Certified Public Accountants, and conduct applied research projects that are published in professional journals.

Students majoring in accounting are well prepared for a variety of careers in public accounting, private industry, and government. In addition, the accounting curriculum is an excellent foundation for advanced study in fields such as business administration, management, law, public administration, and taxation. The Association of Student Accountants provides an excellent opportunity for accounting majors to become actively involved in extra-curricular activities, including meeting and discussing career goals with practicing accountants. Internships in accounting are often available at local public accounting firms and other businesses. For more information on internships, please contact Mr. Mike Simon at mike.simon@lsus.edu.
