The Master of Accountancy (MAcy) degree with a major in Accounting is designed to broaden the educational experience of individuals preparing for a career in the public accounting profession. Students explore the social, ethical and environmental effects of accounting information on those who rely on it for their decision making needs. The MAcy program can be used to satisfy the 150-hour education requirement for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam in Texas.
The MAcy degree consists of three requirements: background courses, core accounting courses, and accounting electives. The purpose of the 12 hours of background courses is to provide a strong base of knowledge for advanced accounting studies. Background courses may be waived for students who have successfully completed previous course work addressing current developments in the content area.
