Master of Accountancy
The Master of Accountancy is designed to provide the range of knowledge and practical skills needed by the professional accountant. The program is also designed to meet the academic requirements for eligibility for the Florida CPA Examination. The M.Acc. program is offered on the DeLand campus and online.
Since the Master of Accountancy requires an undergraduate degree and coursework equivalent to a major in accounting, candidates will normally have completed, as undergraduates, the equivalent of the Business and Accounting Foundation courses. If the student’s undergraduate record indicates any deficiency in the Foundation areas or in accounting preparation, the Program Director will require additional Foundation or Accounting coursework before the Advanced Level courses are attempted.
Ethical conduct is a hallmark of the accounting profession. As such, students enrolled in the program must adhere to the program’s Academic Honor Code. Any student enrolled in the program found to have committed an act of academic dishonesty will be subject to disciplinary action, which could include permanent dismissal from the program.
