Combined Bachelor’s/Master’s Degree Programs

Undergraduate students who wish to enroll in graduate-level courses for a master’s degree have an opportunity to do so through UF’s combined-degree program. Students, with approval, can apply 12 credit hours of graduate course work toward the completion of their undergraduate degree. The combined-degree program reduces the cost of both degrees and may enhance the student’s marketability for career advancement.

Students who meet the combined-degree application requirements can enroll in 12 credits of graduate courses during their junior and senior years. These credits will satisfy the undergraduate degree requirements and, if the student is admitted to graduate school at UF, the 12 credits also will satisfy graduate degree requirements. The program’s minimum admission requirement is a 3.2 GPA (may be higher for some programs). Admission to the corresponding graduate program requires an 1100 GRE score (may be higher for some programs). For more information, see page p. 1-30 and the Student Self Service website.

This program provides two special opportunities:

  • The Master of Agribusiness (MAB) degree is for students who desire careers in marketing and management in agriculture, food processing/ distribution, forest products and related industry where there has been strong demand for MAB graduates. Offered by the Department of Food and Resource Economics (FRE), the MAB can be completed in three semesters (fall, spring and sum-mer). A bachelor’s degree in economics or business is not required. For more information: www.fred.ifas.ufl.edu/.
  • The Master of Science in Business Administration, Concentration in Management (MSM) is for non-business majors who wish to pursue an advanced degree in a professional field. Students have the opportunity, for example, to combine expertise in liberal arts and other academic disciplines with functional business applications to create a dynamic skill set that is in demand with employers. For additional information: www.cba.ufl.edu/.
