Master of Taxation
The Master of Taxation program admits students for the fall (August) and spring (January) semesters.
Yes, many of our students work full-time while enrolled in the Master of Taxation program. Our classes begin at 4:30 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. so as to not interfere with the work day.
The Master of Taxation program can be completed in a one-year format (four classes in the fall, four classes in the spring and two classes in the summer) or two-year format (two classes in the fall, two classes in the spring and one class in the summer over two years).
Classes are offered at our Buckhead Center in the late afternoon starting at 4:30 p.m. or in the evening starting at 7:15 p.m. once a week, Monday-Thursday.
Students must complete 30 credit hours with a 3.0 GPA or higher to graduate.
There are three prerequisite courses for this program: Principles of Accounting I and II and an introductory federal taxation course. These courses are often referred to as Introduction/Principles of Managerial Accounting or Introduction/Principles of Financial Accounting.
No, the prerequisite courses do not need to be completed before you apply. The courses must be completed before the first day of the semester.
