Thesis-Based Plant Biology Program

The Plant Biology Department offers a research-oriented thesis-based program toward a M.S. or a Ph.D. in Plant Biology that provides training in basic scientific research in diverse aspects of plant biology. These include developmental genetics, molecular regulation of gene expression, cell biology, plant-microbe interactions, ecological genomics, systematics and biogeography, and ecology of plant population and community dynamics.

Most graduate students in the Plant Biology graduate program earn a Ph.D. though exceptional candidates seeking a M.S. are also accepted.

Project-Based Field Naturalist Program

The Department is also home to the project-based Field Naturalist M.S. program. This is a unique field-based program that develops the potential of tomorrow's conservation leaders by emphasizing scientific integration, oral and written communication, and environmental problem solving.
