Majors and Minors
If you appreciate the diversity and beauty of plant life, are concerned about ecology and are fascinated by the mechanisms behind plant growth and development, you'll enjoy the Plant Biology major.

You'll receive a strong science background and exposure to the full scope of the plant world, such as developing plant-based products, understanding plant genetics, creating better ways to identify, manage and control plant diseases, and making advances in molecular biology.

This major is a good choice for a career with biotechnology and genetics companies, research-oriented companies and universities, crop consulting companies, or to continue your post-graduate education.
