Accountancy Undergraduate Student Handbook

Comprehensive information on completing your undergraduate degree, finding internships and jobs, successfully passing the CPA exam, and many other important topics is included in the Lynn Pippenger School of Accountancy's Undergraduate Student Handbook.

Master of Accountancy

Designed to meet the increasing needs of business, government, and public accounting, our MAcc program provides students with greater breadth and depth of knowledge than possible in the baccalaureate program. Completion can fulfill the educational requirements to sit for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) examination and be licensed in the state of Florida and most other states. Current Undergraduate students are strongly encouraged to apply.

PhD in Accountancy

Graduates of the PhD program demonstrate the mastery of one or more specialized areas of accounting, such as accounting information systems, auditing, managerial accounting, or financial accounting. Our program is purposefully small, so that students are able to work closely with faculty members while pursuing their doctoral degree.
