Note: The above course of study provides a guide in
planning. However to meet special needs and interests
of each student the courses taken and the order in which
they are taken may require alteration. Study the
requirements, plan a course of study, and consult with
an advisor early in the program. This will save
considerable time and minimize frustration.
THE DISCIPLINE:
This unique degree is for students who desire combined
training in biotechnology and plant genetics. It is a
relatively new discipline representing one of the most
exciting developments in biological sciences in the PWSt
century. Students completing this degree will find
themselves in the very forefront of biology in the 21
st
century.
CAREER OPPORTUNITIES:
The major is designed to provide a broad range of skills,
including the following: quantitative reasoning;
interpretation of scientific literature; recognition of
historical and current scientific trends; principles of
scientific data collection, interpretation, and assimilation;
and critical writing.
Graduates enter directly into industry, medical schools, or
graduate programs in any of the many biological science
disciplines.
HANDS-ON LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES:
Every student in this major is encouraged to seek
mentored research opportunities with faculty within the
program. Completing one or more of these mentored
research opportunities will set students apart and provide
experience and credentials valuable in being admitted
into the best graduate programs in the U.S.
FINANCING:
Scholarships are available for qualified students from the
department, college, and university.
HONORARY SOCIETIES AND CLUBS:
The Department of Plant and Wildlife Sciences
encourages student participation in active clubs within the
department. Students are active participants in
professional societies; national honor societies; campus
academic, service, and social clubs.
**Wellness – one course: HEPE 129; or a 3-course combination: ExSc 105 + 2 activity classes (1.5–2.0 hours).
Note 1: Students are encouraged to complete an average of 15 credit hours each semester or 30 credit hours each
year, which could include spring and/or summer terms. Taking fewer credits substantially increases the cost and the
number of semesters to graduate.
Note 2: Business majors should do PWS 199R (Academic Internship) during summer between Junior and Senior
years.
