Boston University Launches New Master in the Study of Tax Law

New program aimed at nonlegal professionals

Boston University School of Law (BU Law) has announced the launch of a new Master in the Study of Tax Law (MSL) program.

The new program is 24 credits and is aimed at nonlegal professionals—such as accountants, auditors, and other business professionals—who are interested in learning more about tax law. It will also appeal to recent graduates of accounting programs, in that the MSL can help them satisfy the 150 credit hours required for CPA licensure.

Students in the new Tax MSL program will have access to the same curricula available to students in the school's Graduate Tax Program, which is only open to students with a first degree in law.

BU's new Tax MSL can be pursued on either a full- or part-time basis, and will be available both in-class or online. Full-time students must fulfill all requirements in two semesters, while part-time students have up to four years to complete the program.

To apply, prospective Master in the Study of Tax Law candidates must have a bachelor's degree from an accredited school—or the international equivalent. 

The program will enroll students in the spring, summer, and fall semesters. It's set to launch this fall.

For more information, please see BU Law's Master in the Study of Tax Law program page.
