The Master of Science in Taxation prepares students for professional tax practice in both the public and private sectors. The program is geared to practicing accountants in the fields of public, corporate, and governmental accounting; as well as lawyers, financial managers and planners, who need extensive information and formal study in taxation. A unique feature of the program is its practitioner-focus. The distinguished faculty includes partners and managers from national, regional, and local CPA firms, noted tax attorneys, and specialists in many areas such as financial planning and state and local taxation.
The program consists of 30 credit hours of graduate coursework. It is offered in the evening at both the Main Campus and the Bucks County Campus in two formats: an accelerated format and a traditional format. Students may take courses toward the degree or as Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits to meet biannual state CPE requirements to maintain their CPA license or to enhance their expertise in a specific topic.
