Plant Sciences major curriculum

The requirements for the Plant Sciences degree were significantly revised for the Fall 2015 incoming class to bolster the strength and community of the program.  

Note that the current requirements are considered the minimum for a well-rounded foundation in the plant sciences. Students interested in pursuing a scientific career or graduate education are encouraged to take biochemistry, calculus and physics as electives, over and above the core requirements.

If you entered the Plant Sciences major in Fall 2015 or later:

If you entered the Plant Sciences major in Spring 2015 or earlier, your requirements are different. Contact Leah Cook, Plant Sciences Major Coordinator, at 607-255-1257 or for more information.
