PLANT PATHOLOGY

The department offers work leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. For the Ph.D. degree, individual programs of study must conform with the requirements established by the Graduate School ; a minor is not required.

Admission Requirements

The Graduate School 's requirements for admission are likewise the minimum requirements for acceptance into the M.S. and Ph.D. programs of the Department of Plant Pathology. However, additional materials are required for application to the Plant Pathology graduate programs. Each applicant must arrange for three letters of recommendation, and must send a curriculum vitae and a written statement identifying the applicant's reasons to enter studies in this department to the Department DGS. These materials and those submitted to the Graduate School are considered on a case-by-case basis by the Department Academic Program Committee, which then makes a recommendation on admission. Admission to a graduate program in Plant Pathology does not guarantee financial assistance to the student. Applicants who are admitted will also be informed of any financial offer in a contract that they must sign to be admitted to the Graduate School .
