Bridgewater State University accounting students now have the choice between three different program tracks:
Students who plan on sitting for the CPA exam have two program options to satisfy the Massachusetts Board of Accountancy requirements. Full-time students who plan on sitting for the CPA exam, should complete the requirements for the integrated 5-year (Bachelor's & Master's) degree program, outlined in the Program Guide. The CPA-Track/150-hour program guide is intended to assist students in selecting concentration tracks. Please note that the University Catalog is the official college resource for program information.
Evening students may either enroll in the 5-year program or complete their bachelors degree and then enroll in the ten course masters degree program. Qualified students possessing bachelors degrees in non-accounting majors will be required to complete several prerequisites.
Five-year program students will be allowed to apply for acceptance into the Master's program at the end of their junior year, and must have no more than 30 credits remaining in their bachelors degree program (transfer students must also first complete 30 credits at BSU before applying) thus allowing them to take both undergraduate level and graduate level courses over their remaining four semesters. Students in this program, should enroll for Advanced Accounting & Auditing as 500-level courses.
Students who do not plan on sitting for the CPA exam, may review the Non-CPA track program requirements in program guides available in the office. The program guide is intended to assist students in selecting concentration tracks. Please note that the University Catalog is the official college resource for program information.
