In this study, 1700 theses of master degree in five decades in accounting from 57 universities have been studied in terms of dispersion of thematic relation of these with accounting educational approach and have been reconciled in eight areas of financial, industrial, audit, state, tax, accounting information systems, educational and other various issues, and were analyzed based on thematic content analysis. The findings of study suggest that matters in terms of educational have been very limited and express reluctance of students to educational approach.
