CCU offers new Master of Accountancy degree

Coastal Carolina University has established a new master's degree program in accountancy that will begin in the fall. The Master of Accountancy (MAcc) degree was developed to meet the growing demand for Certified Public Accountant (CPA) certification.

The 30-hour degree program is designed to help students achieve certification as CPAs or Certified Management Accountants (CMA). The MAcc degree will prepare students for careers in public accounting, industry, financial institutions, government, nonprofit organizations and entrepreneurial endeavors.

"This program adds value for students," says Marvin Keene, chair of the Department of Accounting, Finance and Economics at CCU's E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration. "The type of courses included in the MAcc curriculum go beyond what students have studied previously as undergraduates, honing and perfecting skills they will need to succeed in accounting positions at CPA firms or industry. Besides getting a head start in preparing for the CPA exam, they'll also be cultivating relations with community partners that will benefit them as they start their careers."

For more information on the Master of Accountancy program, contact the Wall College of Business Graduate Programs office at 843-349-2761 or email
