Accountancy Graduate Program

Program Overview

The Graduate Program offers a Master of Science in Accountancy degree that consists of two main tracks- Financial Reporting/Assurance and Taxation. Beginning in the 2013 academic year, students may elect the International Track which can be done in conjunction with the Financial Reporting/Assurance Track or the Taxation Track. The curriculum prepares graduates for positions within public accounting, private industry and government. Our program is centered on four critical objectives aimed at ensuring the professional success of our students, including:

  • A Broadened Perspective
  • Attainment of Specialized Technical Skills and Knowledge
  • Professional Development
  • Effective Communication

Students completing the Program will meet the education requirements for licensure as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) in most states.

The Program consists of thirty semester hours of coursework including two required courses-- ACCT 500- Accounting Theory and ACCT 599- Contemporary Accountancy Issues. In addition to the two required courses, each student, in consultation with the Director, will devise a plan of study for completion of their Track bearing to their intended area of practice.
