Program Overview

The Master of Science in Accountancy degree program includes 30 credit hours of coursework and consists of two main tracks — financial reporting and assurance track and taxation track. An optional international track that supplements the two main tracks includes a summer European international immersion trip.

Among the unique features of the program are two directed research projects which allow students to gain invaluable knowledge and expertise in specific topics germane to their intended areas of practice. These directed research projects are conducted in the context of the program's two required courses, Accounting Theory and Contemporary Accountancy Issues.

Full-time students who begin their studies in the fall semester can complete the program in ten (10) months. The fall and spring semesters would require twelve (12) credit hours each with the final six (6) hours in the summer semester.

Students who enter the program in the spring semester are able to complete the program in roughly seventeen (17) months with a sequence of coursework in consecutive spring, summer, fall and spring semesters.

Students completing the program will meet the education requirements for licensure as a certified public accountant (CPA) in most states.
