This Directed Field Studies course requires students to work for an employer in an accounting position. The employer and position must be approved by the work experience coordinator. The work term will normally be completed over a four-month period. Any deviation from this pattern must be approved in advance by the work experience coordinator and the faculty advisor. Under no circumstances will a work-term consist of less than 450 hours of work. Students will typically be employed in either a public accounting firm, in government or in industry. Students are also required to complete a series of research projects to relate practical experience to their academic studies.
Prerequisite: Accounting 2010 and successful completion of the work experience Professional Development Seminars.
