Course Information

The objectives of the master of science in accounting are:

  • To provide students with an advanced understanding of the field of accounting,

  • To provide students with specific advanced knowledge of the sub-topics within accounting,

  • To provide students with professional skills that will enable them to enjoy productive and rewarding careers in accounting and other accounting-related areas.

The program consists of a minimum of 30 semester hours of graduate coursework. Students must complete coursework in accounting and elective business and/or non-business areas. Eighty percent of the student’s total coursework must consist of 5000-level courses; the remaining 20 percent may be 4000-level non-accounting courses (approximately six hours). Non-accounting courses should be selected in consultation with the student’s graduate adviser. Non-accounting courses at the 4000-level may be taken during the senior year of undergraduate study and applied to the master’s program, but they must be reserved for graduate credit and approved by the graduate program director, prior to the first day of such classes.
