The history of business is set forth in its accounts. But accounting is more than record keeping—it is one of the most important, proactive and challenging fields of modern business, and a perfect fit for motivated and enterprising students. The Culverhouse School of Accountancy offers one of the most challenging programs of any American university.
- Enrollment means access to some of the nation's top accounting scholars, a huge network of alumni, top firms and organizations, great academic and career advising, and the best preparation for a career accounting for tomorrow's business today.
Accountancy at the master's level replaces the rudiments of financial management with real hands-on experience. The Master of Accountancy degree program provides students with a greater understanding of accounting and business than is possible in an undergraduate program.
The program prepares students for careers as professional accountants in financial institutions, government, industry, nonprofit organizations and public practice.
Graduates are prepared to research various databases related to troublesome accounting problems, and to exercise judgment in making accounting-related decisions by drawing on their integrated, comprehensive body of accounting knowledge and experience—what all masters have in common.
Students must take a minimum of 30 hours of graduate courses, including a minimum of 21 hours of accounting courses as listed below. Up to nine elective hours, as approved by an advisor, may be chosen from 500-level courses and must be approved by the coordinator of the MAcc program. Students cannot receive graduate credit for a course if they have taken an equivalent course at the undergraduate level. Another accounting course should be substituted with the approval of the coordinator of the MAcc program.
