As a predominantly undergraduate college, Rhodes offers unique programs and personalized counseling for students who plan to pursue advanced degrees. Designated faculty members guide students through application for the major postgraduate scholarships. Others provide mentoring for those entering programs in law, medicine, ministry and others. Rhodes students enjoy an exceptionally high rate of acceptance into graduate and professional programs.
In addition, through the Master of Science in Accounting, Master of Arts in Urban Education, and Dual Degree programs, students may also undertake continued work toward graduate degrees at Rhodes. Rhodes College students majoring in Business or Economics/Business or non-Rhodes students majoring in accounting may earn the M.S. in Accounting in two semesters. In the Dual Degree programs, students can, for instance, receive a master’s degree from another institution, along with a bachelor’s from Rhodes, after taking extra courses to fulfill requirements. These programs are listed in our catalog.
Tuition for the Master of Science in Accounting for 2022-2023 is set at $52,000. All applicants are automatically considered for a departmental scholarship with no additional forms required to be filed. The average scholarship for 2021-2022 was $21,200.
The tuition charges, regulations for payment and withdrawal, activity fees, and special fees and deposits for the M.S. in Accounting are the same as for the undergraduate program at Rhodes. Room charges and policies are also the same as those for the undergraduate programs; however, on-campus rooms will be made available to graduate students only after all undergraduate demand has been satisfied.
The majority of candidates can fulfill the requirements of the degree in two four-course semesters; a complete listing of courses and the degree requirements of the program can be found in the College Catalogue.
