This degree provides a research-oriented terminal qualification for those seeking entry-level faculty positions in accounting. Students take approximately three years of course work beyond the bachelor’s degree, including a doctoral sequence designed to expose students to various areas of accounting research. Courses in accounting and other areas are selected to supplement the student’s individual background and to prepare the student in an area of accounting specialization (financial, managerial, auditing, tax or systems). The final year is normally spent completing the doctoral dissertation. Minimum course requirements are 12 hours including ACCT 611 , ACCT 612 , ACCT 619 , and one other accounting course to be approved by the PhD accounting program advisor.
