M.S. in Accounting

Format: Campus

Program Description:

Fairfield’s Master of Science in Accounting program offers a 30-credit master’s in accounting. Students can choose between two tracks: assurance or taxation. Coursework covers accounting in governments, hospitals, and universities; ethics, financial statement analysis, and entity taxation. The program not only meets these professional needs, it also addresses the educational requirements of most states for CPA certification. Students who choose the taxation track must complete at last six courses in tax (though seven are strongly advised). In addition, all students complete research coursework. The curriculum includes off time to take the CPA exam and complete paid internships. This program must be completed on a full-time basis, beginning in the summer and ending the following May. This cohort model insures a strong sense of community among all the students, as well as opportunities to work closely with the Dolan School’s accounting faculty.
