Westfield—The College of Graduate and Continuing Education (CGCE) at Westfield State University will host an information session for its Master of Science in accounting program on Tuesday, January 29 at 6 p.m. in the lobby of the Horace Mann Center, 333 Western Avenue, Westfield.

At Westfield State, the objective of the accounting graduate program is to prepare students for management positions in accounting. The MSA program builds on the knowledge and tools from a student’s undergraduate education and the experience of the working professional, allowing them to achieve a greater degree of sophistication in accounting and auditing. Also, the MSA program enables students to meet the 150-hour educational requirement for the Certified Public Accountancy license in Massachusetts.

The University’s MSA program is a hybrid, with coursework split between in-person and online. Students may enroll on either a full- or part-time basis. With two curriculums, the MSA program welcomes students with or without an accounting background who are looking to earn an advanced degree in accounting. The Foundation Curriculum offers students who have a business background, but lack coursework in accounting, to earn their MSA. The Advanced Curriculum offers students who have an academic background in accounting to complete their MSA in just two semesters.

Information session attendees will have an opportunity to speak with faculty and members of the Outreach Team about the program and its application process. The $50 application fee will be waived for all attendees. To RSVP, visit For more information, call 413-572-8020 or email
