Master of Science in Accounting

Program Details

GCU's accelerated evening or online Master of Science in Accounting (MSA) opens a pathway toward the achievement of a Certified Public Accountant's credentials. Learners in this program are offered comprehensive preparation for the highly demanding Uniform CPA Exam, through two capstone courses, at the conclusion of the MSA program. These capstone courses strategically approach the exam's four components to maximize the possibilities of success on test day. The format of GCU's MSA program is commonly referred to as the four-plus-one, catering specifically to candidates who have earned a bachelor's degree in accounting. Learners who are admitted with an undergraduate business degree in a discipline other than accounting would have to complete the bridge program, before they can register for MSA courses.
