Discover the USF Graduate Tax Program
With renowned faculty, hands-on training, and a well-connected alumni network, USF offers the premier option in Northern California to earn your graduate tax law degree — and jump start your career.
The USF School of Law Graduate Taxation Programs will help you take your tax career to the next level.
USF offers an LLM in Taxation for lawyers, a Master of Legal Studies in Taxation (MLST) for non-lawyers and a JD/LLM in Taxation dual degree. Students in all programs learn from expert faculty members who empower lawyers, accountants, and financial professionals with a comprehensive understanding of tax law and policy. Classes are offered online, at USF’s Downtown Campus in the Financial District, and at the San Francisco headquarters of Andersen Tax. Both full- and part-time options are offered and financial aid packages are available.
Recent graduates are employed at Andersen Tax, KPMG, Deloitte, and Orrick, to name just a few companies that actively recruit from USF. A degree from the USF Graduate Tax Program will help move your career forward: From 2017-18, an average of 94 percent of program graduates had jobs the day they graduated.
USF’s LLM in Taxation accelerated my desirability in the job market and helped me start a promising career in tax. Additionally, because the program was so small, I not only made lifelong career connections, but lifelong friends as well.”
