- ABOUT LAKELAND
Cognate emphases complement the Lakeland College accounting major. By taking the four courses in an emphasis area (in addition to the courses in the major), accounting students can make themselves distinctively qualified, skill-ready, and highly employable in the emphasis field. The following cognate emphasis areas are available: Forensic/Fraud, Insurance Industry, International Business, Marketing, Taxation, and Treasury/Controllership.
Generally, Lakeland will accept accounting credits earned for coursework taken at accredited two-year, post-secondary institutions to meet requirements for the accounting major. However, ACC 355 Federal Income Tax II, ACC 396 Intermediate Accounting II, ACC 471 Advanced Accounting I, ACC 472 Auditing Theory and Practice, and ACC 474 Advanced Accounting II must be taken and passed at Lakeland to meet requirements of the accounting major. Taking these courses at Lakeland will not cause the loss of credits for courses of the same or similar titles transferred from two-year institutions; nor will taking any two of the following courses: ACC 395 Intermediate Accounting I, ACC 420 Cost Accounting, ACC 450 Federal Income Tax I, or ACC 465 Accounting Information Systems, jeopardize the transfer of credits for courses of the same or similar title taken at a two-year institution.
