Master of Accountancy


Master of Accountancy Brochure

The MAcc program provides candidates with greater breadth and depth of knowledge in accountancy than is possible in the baccalaureate program. The program is designed to meet the increasing needs of business, government, and public accounting. Students entering the MAcc program must already have the equivalent of an undergraduate degree in accounting from an AACSB-accredited school. The program may also be structured to satisfy the requirements to sit for the CPA examination in Florida.

Program Structure

Students who have the equivalent of an undergraduate major in accounting at USF (including 21-24 hours of upper-level accounting coursework taken within the last five years from a regionally accredited institution in the United States), are required to complete 30 hours of coursework. The majority of the coursework (24 hours) is devoted to the study of accounting. The remaining six hours consist of study in other areas of business, including economics, entrepreneurship, finance, and information systems/decision sciences. These six hours are selected by the student in consultation with the MAcc Program advisor. At least 70 percent of the coursework must be at the 6000 level. Students will choose a concentration in either tax, assurance, or corporate accounting.
