CALS master’s degrees are now available in agribusiness management, agriculture with an animal and dairy sciences concentration, and early intervention.

The Master of Agribusiness Management is a 30-hour interdisciplinary degree in CALS and the College of Business, administered through MSU’s Department of Agricultural Economics.

The 31-hour Master of Agriculture degree in the Department of Animal and Dairy Sciences prepares students to advance in animal feeding, breeding and production.

The Master of Science in Early Intervention, also 30 hours and offered through MSU’s School of Human Sciences, is an innovative and comprehensive program designed to address the shortage of trained professionals with expertise in working with infants, toddlers and preschoolers with special needs and their families.
