The PhD Program in Accounting is a research-intensive program that provides excellent preparation for a career in academics. The four-year program is designed to provide the tools needed for long-term success as an accounting scholar in all areas, including research, teaching, and service. 

The Culverhouse School of Accountancy's faculty supports students interested in archival/empirical and behavioral/experimental research in auditing, financial accounting, and tax. We seek to admit, train, and graduate students who have initiative, enthusiasm, and a desire to become scholars at major academic institutions.
