See Transcript »

My name is Dr. Cheryl Noll. I am the Dean of the College of Business at South University. The Master of Science in Accounting program is targeted towards students who have already completed an undergraduate degree in accounting. They are usually working in the field and are seeking advancement in their position or seeking other positions in the field of accounting.

In the Master of Science in Accounting program, which is a fully online program, students engage with each other in the online course. They engage with the faculty through discussion and interactions, responses to the discussions.

In addition, the faculty are available to students in the course and outside of the course. In the classroom, the students are exposed to theory and then they are given multiple opportunities to apply that theory. That is key to understanding accounting. You have to practice, and students are given many opportunities to practice what it is that they are learning.
