Master of Science in Accountancy (MSA)

Wheeling Jesuit University's MSA program covers the important aspects of accounting and does so efficiently.

To be eligible to sit for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam, most states now require that individuals complete at least 150 semester hours of college. To meet that need, Wheeling Jesuit University created the Master of Science in Accountancy (MSA) program. The Wheeling Jesuit University MSA is a professional non-thesis program designed for individuals who have attained an undergraduate degree in accounting. The MSA degree requires 10 courses, totaling 30 hours, to complete.

The MSA degree offers potential advantages for those in the accounting field:

  • The program expands the student's knowledge base about accounting.
  • In addition to completing academic credit required to sit for the CPA exam, the program provides the student with the opportunity to earn an additional credential, the MSA degree.
  • For accounting professionals who have already earned the CPA, courses taken in requirements necessary for CPA's.
