A firm foundation in traditional sciences forms the base of the Agronomy option for undergraduates. From there, you'll further your study in plant nutrition, integrated pest management, and crop production. Courses in ecology, conflict resolution, and agricultural business management will finish out your education.
Graduate students can choose to pursue a Master of Agriculture, a Master of Science, or a Doctor of Philosophy degree with a major in Crop Science. Areas of study leading to graduate degrees in Crop Science include biotechnology, cereal breeding and genetics, cereal chemistry, crop physiology, crop production, forage and pasture management, hop breeding and genetics, new crops, potato production, breeding and genetics, seed physiology, seed production, seed technology and quality, weed science, and entomology.
