Master of Agriculture in Food Science and Technology

The Master of Agriculture (MAgr) degree is designed for a student who wants professional graduate training with a management orientation in agriculture, food and natural resources. It is intended to emphasize the problem solving skills involved in the use of science and technology to benefit humanity, not as a research degree.

An individual with a baccalaureate degree from a college or university of recognized standing, or a qualified Texas A&M University senior during his/her last semester, may apply for admission to graduate studies to pursue the non-thesis degree of Master of Agriculture. The candidate’s advisory committee shall specify prerequisite work where necessary.

The student must demonstrate problem solving capabilities. Degree candidates gain such capabilities by completing a professional internship lasting between 3 and 9 months in duration. A final examination, including submission and defense of a professional paper, is required for degree completion.
