School of Fisheries, Aquaculture, and Aquatic Sciences - ABM
Accelerated Bachelor’s/Master’s Curriculum for the School of Fisheries, Aquaculture, and Aquatic Sciences
The Accelerated Bachelor’s/Master’s Program (ABM) offers outstanding students in the School of Fisheries, Aquaculture, and Aquatic Sciences an opportunity to earn both the bachelor's and the master's degrees in less time and at less cost than usual. The ABM program allows these exceptional students to count up to 9 hours toward both the bachelor's and master's degrees.
The Bachelor of Science in Fisheries, Aquaculture, and Aquatic Sciences in either the Pre-Vet Option, Fisheries and Aquaculture Option, or Marine Resource Management Option can lead to a Master of Science in Fisheries, Aquaculture, and Aquatic Sciences or a Master of Aquaculture in Fisheries, Aquaculture, and Aquatic Sciences. Below is an example curriculum for a student in the Fisheries and Aquaculture Option pursing the Master of Science in Fisheries, Aquaculture, and Aquatic Sciences. Please see the School of Fisheries, Aquaculture, and Aquatic Sciences website for additional information, ABM tracks and curriculum models.
Below is a chart of all the approved courses that can be taken in the ABM program and what course that replaces at the undergraduate level.
