  3. General Baccalaureate Degree Requirements - see General Baccalaureate Degree Requirements section of catalog

Accelerated Master of Natural and Applied Science

Eligible Missouri State undergraduate students in a major in the College of Natural and Applied Sciences may apply for preliminary acceptance into the Master of Natural and Applied Science program after admission requirements for the accelerated master's option have been satisfied. If accepted, a maximum of 12 credit hours from approved graduate-level courses may be counted toward both the graduate and undergraduate degrees (Mixed Credit). This option offers an opportunity for CNAS majors whose goals, academic capabilities, and career planning include graduate work, to complete the requirements for the master’s degree in less time than would otherwise be possible. Refer to the Graduate Catalog for more information.

For courses to be designated as Mixed Credit, the graduate advisor, undergraduate department head, and Graduate College dean must approve by signing the Permission for Mixed Credit form. This form must be provided to the Office of the Registrar in Carrington Hall 320 no later than the end of the Change of Schedule Period for the semester.

Accelerated master's degree in plant science

Eligible Missouri State undergraduate students majoring in Agriculture, Biology, and Chemistry may apply for preliminary acceptance into the Plant Science program after admission requirements for the accelerated master's option have been satisfied. If accepted, a maximum of 12 credit hours from approved graduate-level courses may be counted towards both the undergraduate and graduate degrees (Mixed Credit). The courses must be in the area of economic botany, plant physiology, plant genetics, crop management systems, plant nutrition, soils, chemistry, ecology, fruit production, viticulture, enology, or ornamental plants and landscaping.

This option is tailored to those undergraduates who have acquired considerable plant science-related research experience in a laboratory through the departments of Agriculture, Biology or Chemistry at Missouri State. Courses to be counted toward both degrees must be identified jointly in agreement with the undergraduate advisor, the student’s research mentor, and the Plant Science Program Director. This option will enable Agriculture, Biology, or Chemistry majors to potentially meet the requirements for the M.S. degree in Plant Science degree within two semesters following the completion of the undergraduate degree. Refer to the Graduate Catalog for more information.

For courses to be designated as Mixed Credit, the graduate advisor, undergraduate department head, and Graduate College dean must approve by signing the Permission for Mixed Credit form. This form must be provided to the Office of the Registrar in Carrington Hall 320 no later than the end of the Change of Schedule Period for the semester.
