The Raymond A. Mason School of Business offers a one-year, full-time program leading to the degree of Master of Accounting (MAcc). In order to earn the MAcc degree, students must satisfactorily complete thirty (30) credit hours of approved graduate coursework comprised of core/required courses and electives.
This program is designed for each student to complete required core coursework in the Fall semester. In the Spring semester, students have the flexibility choose electives from a broad list of offerings, or specialize by completing an optional Emphasis. Areas of emphasis include: Academic, Audit & Assurance, Experiential, Taxation or Valuation & Advisory Services.
Note: The process of having coursework approved for the W&M MAcc degree is separate from having coursework approved to satisfy the educational requirements that Virginia and other states have set for eligibility to obtain the CPA license. Students need to contact their respective Board of Accountancy for the requirements to sit for the CPA exam.
