The Master of Science in Accounting (MSA) program is a fully online program designed for the student who wants to prepare for a career in accountancy but does not have an undergraduate accounting background. The program provides students with the course work required to be eligible to sit for the CPA examination. Although not required for eligibility, a CPA review course after graduation is strongly recommended as final preparation for the examination.
A candidate for the MSA degree will normally need to complete a minimum of 10 courses. Students who have successfully completed equivalent course work at another accredited graduate program may request to have two courses (maximum of six credits) transferred and applied toward degree requirements.
For admission to the program, students should have completed a 3 credit-hour course equivalent to ACCT 101 - Financial Accounting. Students who do not meet this admission requirement may elect to complete ACCT 101 at Dominican, prior to starting the MSA program requirements.
