Overview 

Our faculty is involved in both teaching and research which gives students the benefit of hands on experience in the laboratory in addition to their time in the classroom. We excel in designing a program of study that will meet each student's needs and prepare them for a professional career. 

The Department of Plant Sciences and Plant Pathology offers a rich, diverse curriculum taught by award-winning researchers and supplemented by world-class facilities. As a student of Plant Science and Plant Pathology, you will have the opportunity to influence the future of crop production, play an essential role in maintaining the nation's food supply, develop new technology to manage crop pests, and study the genetics of crops to influence their management and quality. Finally, nearly every one of our programs offers hands-on research and internship experiences. You'll learn as much out of the classroom as in the classrom.
