The Master of Science in Taxation (MST)
The Bryant Master of Science in Taxation (MST) is a part-time program designed with the working professional in mind.
All of the courses focus on the Internal Revenue Code with particular attention to federal and state laws as they affect individuals and corporations. Introductory courses cover individual and corporate taxation, partnerships, and estates and lay the foundation for more technical electives that follow. Using current IRS laws and cases, you will learn to develop and apply tax solutions to the most complex situations for the best outcomes.
The program format allows you to build an expertise in the area of taxation that best fits your career interests. Many of our graduates have gone on to become partners of their firms or, in many cases, started their own consulting firms.
Your instructors are tax professionals who bring years of experience in working with clients and the IRS to the classroom.
The program is offered in the evening. Students typically enroll in one or two courses per semester, and each course meets once a week. MST courses are offered three semesters per year – fall, spring and summer – and although some students elect to take a leave of absence during tax season, many stay continuously enrolled. You may even complete the program from off-campus in real time by utilizing distance-spanning technology.
Students typically complete the MST in two to four years.
