CUA Accounting: Forming Good Stewards

The M.S.A. Program allows students who have completed an undergraduate degree in accounting the opportunity to complete the 150 credit hours to be eligible and well prepared for the CPA examination. With small classes, close mentoring by faculty, an obsession about student placement, and a curriculum solidly based on ethics and integrity, Catholic University M.S.A. graduates will be well prepared for the challenges of the global business world and the accounting profession.

The M.S.A. is designed to be completed in one year (two semesters) of full-time study by students who have already completed a B.S. in accounting or equivalent. It will require 30 credit hours. The M.S.A. degree may also be completed on a part-time basis.
