Campus Doctorates and PhDs in Botany and Plant Science
Botany PhD programs are a great option for students with a strong science background who are also interested in conducting research. Students will learn the science and life of plants, including fungi, algae, viruses and more.
Areas of specialization include breeding and genetics, biotechnology, physiology, propagation, and production and management of horticultural crops such as woody plants, potatoes, vegetables, and herbaceous ornamentals.
Specialized academic and research training in Plant Sciences is available in plant breeding and genetics, weed science, biotechnology, field and forage crop production and management, and sports and urban turfgrass management.
Plant Pathology may involve specialized training in host-parasite genetics, molecular biology and genomics, epidemiology, tissue culture, soil and seed-borne diseases, microbial ecology, and integrated disease management.
