The maximum semester course load for students that are employed as teaching or research assistants is twelve hours though normally Ph.D. students take nine hours.
A tentative list of required accounting courses includes the following four Ph.D. seminars:
- ACCT 916 Introductory Ph.D. Seminar
- ACCT 99x Financial Accounting Research
- ACCT 99X: Selected Topics-Auditing Research
- ACCT 99X Selected Topic-Tax Research
A student is required to successfully complete a twelve graduate credit hours sequence of courses outside of accounting but related to their chosen accounting concentration area.
A Ph.D. student should have taken the equivalent of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Calculus I-III prior to entering the Ph.D. program. A program of study
will include at least four tool courses from, for example, mathematics, econometrics, or statistics consistent with their chosen accounting concentration area (normally
a total of twelve graduate credit hours).
A Ph.D. student is required to successfully complete Economics 973 (Micro-economics). Students are encouraged to take Economics 873 (Micro economics). Once admitted,
you will be required to submit an official transcript that is sent directly from each institution you have attended either electronically or on paper to the Office of Graduate Studies.
At the time of admission, a registration hold will be placed on your account until official transcripts are received. Admission may be rescinded if
discrepancies exist between uploaded transcripts and official transcripts. Students who received degrees from China must have their documents verified
by the China Academic Degrees and Graduate Education Development Center (CDGDC) and mailed directly to Graduate Studies by the CDGDC. Documents held by
the student will not be considered verified. Please refer to the Office of Graduate Studies website for more information.
