Accounting & Information Systems Major
The Bachelor of Science in commerce with a major in accounting and information systems (A&IS) requires a minimum of 175 quarter-units of credit (of which at least 60 must be in upper-division courses). Students must attain a minimum grade point average of 2.0 for all courses completed at Santa Clara University and for all courses in the accounting major. Effective September 2023, the A&IS major has a STEM designation.
All students wishing to major in A&IS must complete both the University core curriculum requirements and the Leavey School of Business core requirements, which include ACTG 11 (Introduction to Financial Accounting) and ACTG 12 (Introduction to Managerial Accounting). We recommend that students complete these two courses by the end of their sophomore year.
In addition, students majoring in A&IS must complete eleven required accounting and OMIS courses and one elective upper division OMIS course (total of twelve courses):
