South Dakota Graduate Accounting Schools with Master's Degree Programs

Augustana College's Graduate Accounting Program

While AC was established in 1835, it did not move to its current location in Sioux Falls, South Dakota until 1918. Today, the campus covers about 100 acres of land. It is the largest private college in the state. Three divisions comprise the university's study options, namely the Humanities Departments, the Natural Sciences Departments, and the Social Sciences Departments. Many clubs and organizations are offered outside the classroom to provide students with extracurricular activities to keep them busy while completing their studies. About 1,750 students are enrolled and 3% of them are graduate students.

Master of Professional Accountancy

Once this program is complete, a student will have 150 credit hours in accounting, qualifying them to take the Uniform CPA exam for membership in the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. The 150 hours includes undergraduate study, as the fifth year of study brings students 30 credits beyond the bachelor's degree level.
