A total of 31 credits hours, including a research project, are required for the Master of Science in Taxation degree. The transfer of credit from other institutions is permitted subject to the Graduate School policy on transfer credit and residency requirements detailed elsewhere in this catalog.

Accountants and practitioners wishing to improve or update their skills, or practicing CPAs in need of continuing education credits, and others seeking to expand their tax backgrounds but uncertain about pursuing a master’s in taxation, should consider pursuing a Taxation certificate as an alternative.
