Master of Science in Accountancy (3:2 Program option)

The Master of Science in Accountancy (MSA) 3:2 Option is a 75-77 unit program that is a variant of the regular MSA program. It provides CSUSB accounting students with an accelerated route to a graduate degree, with simultaneous awarding of both bachelor's and master's degrees. The 3:2 Option allows students to earn graduate credit for several elective courses taken during the junior and senior years, effectively decreasing the summed unit requirement for both degrees. The 3:2 Option provides a seamless process whereby students can progress from undergraduate to graduate status.

Admission to the MSA 3:2 Option is by invitation from the Department of Accounting and Finance.
