On Developing the Writing Skills Course for Accounting Students
Firch, Tim; Campbell, Annhenrie; Lindsay, David H.; Garner, Don E.
American Journal of Business Education, v3 n4 p61-66 Apr 2010
The CSU, Stanislaus, accounting program is providing a new course that meets the university-wide upper-division writing requirement and offers accounting students additional professional study. While a writing skills course is not unusual in a business program, few offer an alternative centered on the accounting body of knowledge. Undergraduate students' research questions are usually not addressed before graduate study and reinforce skills learned in their regular accounting courses. Initial reactions from students have ranged from appreciation for additional time spent on accounting topics to disappointment at missing out on the "general business" writing course. Continual reassessment of the course is planned.
