Food Science - ABM

Accelerated Bachelor’s/Master’s Curriculum for Food Science

The Food Science Accelerated Bachelor's/Master's Program (ABM) provides an opportunity for highly motivated undergraduate students to gain a depth of understanding and experience of food science beyond that of typical bachelor's level graduates. The ABM program allows these exceptional students to count up to 7 hours toward both the bachelor's and master's degrees.

The Bachelor of Science in Food Science undergraduate major can lead to a Master of Science in Food Science in the ABM track. Please see the College of Agriculture website for additional information.

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.
