Master's degree in accounting, or master's degree with 18 graduate hours in accounting, or related degree with equivalent experience in the subject area as well as teaching experience are required. Commitment to student-centered, outcomes-based education with skillful incorporation of multiple instructional strategies and technologies as appropriate is expected.
