About this course

The Master of Science in Accountancy (MSA) program is in response to new developments in the accounting and business worlds. Significant changes in the regulatory climate, including the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, have increased the need for graduate-level education. The 150-credit hour education requirement established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) also has significantly increased the demand for graduate education in accounting.

The Master of Science in Accountancy program uses a combination of online course materials, streaming video and instant messaging to deliver a completely web-based degree. The distance education delivery mode used by the MSA program at Sacramento State vastly increases the flexibility by which students can complete their degree online with highly engaged instructions and interactions. All the courses are offered on a year-round schedule in an accelerated format and the entire program can be completed with an attractive time frame
