Entomology and Plant Pathology - ABM

ABM in Entomology 
Example Curriculum for Student from COSAM: Biology: CONS track 

There is a 16 h max for credit load requirements. This is not exceeded in this curriculum in semesters where the student is taking dual credit ABM courses. Student will begin the Graduate Course work in the Junior Year. In the Fall semester of the Junior Year, they would complete the Gateway course ENTM 3040. In spring of the Junior Year, they would select an ENTM Graduate course listed as an Eco \Evol\Diversity Elective. In their Senior year, students would accumulate 4 more hours in ENTM courses either Spring or Fall as electives. With this model, students would bring 9 graduate hours from their undergraduate curriculum, conduct research the first summer semester, conduct research the following fall and spring as well as complete the required coursework. The Master's degree in ENTM requires 30 hours with 21 of those in ENTM courses. With the following model, students will have 9 hours of graduate work in ENTM from their undergraduate curriculum, then achieve 18 more hours in fall and spring (9 hours each) with the balance in research hours during the Summer semester between the Senior year as an undergraduate and the first summer as a graduate student.

ABM: Master's in Agriculture 
Example Curriculum for Student from CoA: Horticulture 

Two tracks, Nursery and Greenhouse, and Fruit and Vegetable Production are the best fits for an ABM in EPP. The Master of Agriculture (M.Ag) is a non-thesis option for students who do not wish to enter a doctoral program. The Master of Agriculture degree requires at least 32 semester hours of course work, 21 of which must be in ENTM or PLPA, with the remainder of credit hours taken from other, related areas as determined by the student's Advisory Committee. In the following curriculum students complete the gateway courses in their Junior year and begin taking ABM courses in the senior year. Students will bring 9 hours from undergraduate and complete coursework in the following summer, fall, and spring semesters.

ABM: Master's in Plant Pathology 
Example Curriculum for Student from CoA: CSES, Turfgrass Option 

There are three tracks in CSES and only the Turfgrass option has the available electives or free electives to fit with an ABM in EPP. Student will begin the Graduate Course work in the Senior Year. In the Fall semester of the Junior Year they would complete the Gateway course PLPA 3000. In their Senior year, students would accumulate 7-8 hours in PLPA courses in both the Spring or Fall as Plant\Soil electives. With this model, students would bring 7-8 graduate hours from their undergraduate curriculum, conduct research the first summer semester, conduct research the following fall and spring as well as complete the required coursework. The Master's degree requires 30 hours with 21 of those in PLPA courses. With the following model, students will have 7-8 hours of graduate work in ENTM from their undergraduate curriculum, then achieve the remaining hours during the one years as a graduate student (fall and spring semesters) as well as the Summer semester between the Senior year as an undergraduate and the first summer as a graduate student.
