Combined, B.S./MAcc Program

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

The Accounting Department offers interested and qualified students the opportunity to earn both a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting and a Master of Accountancy degree. With judicious course scheduling, students can complete the program within as few as four academic years. This program was developed in response to the adoption by most states of a 150-credit-hour educational requirement to become a Certified Public Accountant and to provide students with the opportunity to work full-time in the profession, while completing the last year of the program either online or on campus.

Students interested in the combined B.S./MAcc degree program should apply as incoming freshman to reserve a seat and inform academic advising. In addition, students should apply to Graduate Admissions as early as December of their junior year. Acceptance into the combined program is based on the student’s previous academic performance and statement of purpose. Students must adhere to requirements as listed in the Graduate Studies Catalog.
