    DESCRIPTION
    The Master of Taxation Program is designed to develop an understanding of the essential elements of the Internal Revenue Code and Regulations. The program provides both a practical and conceptual understanding and the necessary skills and judgment required to apply the IRS Code in actual situations. The taxation courses examine in-depth, particular aspects of the Tax Code and Regulations. The taxation courses provide the student with the foundation necessary to become a successful tax preparer and adviser.

    The Electronic Master of Taxation Program (eMTAX) uses innovative emerging Internet technology, redefining the concept of a classroom and of distance education. The eMTAX supports the university mission of offering academic programs at times convenient to students, employing innovative delivery systems, and rich learning resources on campus and at distant sites. The program has adopted all the rigors of our weekend taxation program, including identical learning outcomes, virtually the same syllabi and textbook requirements, identical distance library resources, and the same faculty pool. The eMTAX Program curriculum and admission requirements are identical to the weekend taxation program, except for the delivery method, which utilizes both synchronous and asynchronous communication.

    A total of 36 graduate credits are required for completion of the eMTAX program. Generally students enroll in two courses per three-month term. Faculty use synchronous and asynchronous delivery methods for all courses including bulletin boards, email, and chat rooms. In addition, faculty provide power point slides, lecture notes, on-line library assignments, sample practice exams, samples cases, and links to textbook Web page notes and interesting Web pages to provide a rich learning environment.

The university's bookstore provides the full-spectrum of shipping options. The school insures that required textbooks are available, and then posts them on its website at least one month prior to the start of each term. Students should place their orders early enough to ensure delivery prior to the start of the term.

(1) They can be taken at a regionally accredited institution with prior course approval in writing from the Huizenga School. (2) They may successfully complete a proficiency examination administered by a testing organization that has national recognition, such as CLEP or DANTES. (3) They may successfully complete online prerequisite courses offered by the Huizenga School.
