Juris Doctor/Master of Accounting
The joint degree program culminates in the joint awarding of the Juris Doctor (JD) and the Master of Accounting (MAcc) degrees. The joint degree program is designed for students who have an undergraduate degree in accounting and are interested in advanced studies in both accounting and law. The joint degree program is open to students who have completed the equivalent of a major in accounting at the undergraduate level.
The purpose of the program is to enable students to obtain the appropriate education in the most efficient manner possible. The joint degree program requires 20 fewer credits than would be required if the two degrees were earned separately. A student must satisfy the curriculum requirements for each degree. However, because certain courses may be used in partial satisfaction of the requirements of both degrees, the total hours required under the joint program is less than those that would be required if the programs were pursued separately.
