Plant Biology Major (B.S. or B.A.)


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Departments and Schools

Major codes BA2111, BS2111

The B.A. degree in plant biology is designed for students interested in the plant sciences, and who desire a broad liberal education. The flexibility in this program allows for either a minor or second major in another discipline, such as economics, business administration, computer science, anthropology, sociology, geography, geological sciences, or biological sciences. If you plan to do graduate studies in plant biology or a related biological science, a B.S. degree (see below) would be more appropriate. Consult a departmental advisor for assistance in selecting a program to prepare you for an advanced degree.
