About this course

The Master of Science in Accounting program curriculum provides a general core of courses to provide individuals with a relevant, practical and applicable accounting foundation from day one. 

Some classes depending on jurisdiction, may count towards the 150-credit-hour CPA education requirement.  The Smith School does not and will not make the determination for CPA exam eligibility.  Each state's respective Board of Accountancy determines licensing requirements,  and students are advised to check the CPA examination and licensing requirements for the jurisdiction in which they wish to obtain a CPA license.

Classes are held at two of our campus locations in Maryland – College Park and Rockville (Shady Grove). Both campuses are easily accessed from all points throughout the Washington, D.C., metropolitan region, which spans from Baltimore to northern Virginia.
