University rank #407 (QS) , TN,
For qualified students, the Department of Animal Science from University of Tennessee Knoxville offers a Animal Science, Five-Year Program bachelor of science and a thesis-based MS major in Animal Science.

About

Central to this Animal Science, Five-Year Program is that a qualified student may take up to nine hours of graduate level courses for their senior undergraduate electives and have them count toward both the BS degree and the MS degree. 

Students are typically considered for conditional admission to the program during, or immediately following, their third year of undergraduate study at the University of Tennessee Knoxville. 

Because the MS program requires that a student write a thesis based on original research, efforts related to developing and starting a research-based project in consultation with a graduate advisory committee (that meets MS committee requirements) is required immediately following their third year of undergraduate studies.

Any graduate course that is to be counted towards both the BS degree and the MS degree must be approved by the student’s graduate advisory committee, the departmental Graduate Director, the Herbert College of Agriculture, and by the Graduate School. These courses must be identified in consultation with the graduate advisory committee members. 

The form “Animal Science Conditional Admission Five-Year BS-MS” is available from the Graduate Director and must be completed, signed by the student, the student’s graduate advisory committee, the Graduate Director, and Herbert College of Agriculture before submitting to the Graduate School for approval and processing.”
