Master of Agriculture in Animal Science
The Master of Agriculture (M.Ag.) degree is designed for students who want professional graduate training with a management orientation in agriculture, food and natural resources. It is intended to emphasize the problem solving skills involved in the use of science and technology to benefit humanity, not as a research degree.
Individuals with a baccalaureate degree from a college or university of recognized standing, or qualified Texas A&M University seniors during their last semester, may apply for admission to graduate studies to pursue the non-thesis degree of Master of Agriculture. The candidate’s advisory committee shall specify prerequisite work where necessary.
The degree may be earned in any academic department of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and in five interdisciplinary areas: agricultural chemistry, food science and technology, natural resource development, plant sciences, and agricultural development.
A minimum of 36 hours is required for the Master of Agriculture degree. Approximately 12 credit hours are to be taken outside of the student’s degree option. Students must complete 12 credit hours on the campus at College Station to satisfy the residence requirement. (See the graduate catalog for more details.)
