Graduate School Bulletin - Spring 2005

SOIL SCIENCE

The Soil Science graduate program offers graduate work leading to the Doctor of Philosophy degree with areas of specialization in morphology and classification, soil chemistry, soil fertility, soil genesis, soil management, soil microbiology, soil mineralogy, and soil physics. The Soil Science faculty also participate in the interdepartmental Plant and Soil Science graduate program, which offers programs of study leading to the Master of Science degree.

Work leading to advanced degrees must conform to the general rules and regulations of the Graduate School.

Preparation for graduate work in soil science should include some course work in biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics. Students will be expected to make up deficiencies in any of these areas early in the course of their graduate study.
