Undergraduate Concentration in Plant and Soil Science

(B.S. in Agricultural Sciences)

The undergraduate concentration in Plant and Soil Science leads to a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Sciences and is designed to prepare students to meet the rapidly increasing need for graduates who are highly qualified in the complex and scientific field of agriculture and renewable natural resources. The courses are taught with both theoretical and practical application, so students are prepared for the many career choices available. Paid research co-ops/internship opportunities are available to students enrolled in the undergraduate programs.
