Degree Requirements from Seattle University's 2023-2024 Graduate Catalog.
45 credits to completion
The MSAA degree is a cohort program that requires 45 graduate credit hours beyond the undergraduate degree and any of the program prerequisites. The degree has been designed for students who have an undergraduate degree in accounting from an accredited university. The program includes fourteen 3-credit courses and a 3-credit service practicum.
In addition, Seattle University has created an MSAA Early Start program for SU undergraduate Accounting students going into the MPAC. (link to Early Start in UG site).
