Students interested in the Integrated BS in Animal Business / MBA in Business Administration will be required to complete a minimum of 149 semester credit hours of degree credit.  Of this total, 110 semester credit hours will be at the undergraduate level and 39 hours will be at the graduate level.  A unique feature of the five-year program is that students will begin taking graduate course work in their senior year. All candidates for this program are required to take the GMAT and be admitted to the Graduate Program before taking any graduate credit hours.  The student must maintain a cumulative 3.0 in all undergraduate courses and a cumulative 3.0 in all graduate courses. Another unique feature of this program will be the awarding of the BS in Animal Business and MBA in Business Administration degrees simultaneously at the completion of the program.  Therefore, a student will not be awarded the BS in Animal Business after completing 110 semester credit hours at the undergraduate level until the completion of the 39 graduate level courses in the MBA in Business Administration.  Should a student decide not to finish the MBA portion of the program, then this student would be required to complete all of the course requirements for the BA in Animal Business as a separate degree.

**The natural science requirement for a Bachelor of Science Degree in Agribusiness will be met by completing Animal Science 3449 and 4344 and 8 hours of Biology, Chemistry, or Geology.
