MSA Sequence

The MSA course offerings are sequenced, however with the exception of one course, there are no prerequisites. This allows students to be admitted at any point during an academic year. ACCT 6021, "Professional Judgment", is the only course that has prerequisites, and is only offered in the summer session. Students may take any other courses in any order.

MSA students can complete the degree in one year by taking two courses per session or in two years by taking one course per session. The fall and spring semesters are divided into 2 seven-week sessions, with two courses being offered in each session, while in summer we offer a single seven-week session. Note a student must take a minimum of 2 courses per semester to receive financial aid for a semester.
