Are you interested in crop science, horticulture, landscape architecture, plant breeding, plant molecular genetics, or weed science?
The Department of Plant Sciences provides graduate level educational and research opportunities, led by the Herbert College of Agriculture, for students interested in a range of concentrations.
We are very happy that you have chosen to pursue an advanced degree with us and look forward to working with you over the next few years. I am confident that most of you will be able to look back on this experience as one of the more enjoyable and exciting times of your life.
Please do not hesitate to contact your advisor, a faculty member, Graduate Coordinator Bill Klingeman, Administrative Assistant for Student Records Sandy Kitts, or me if you have any questions, need guidance, or have suggestions.
