There is currently a strong need for M.S. graduates trained in these areas, and the demand is expected to increase dramatically.
Students are prepared for careers in research, extension, teaching, private consulting, industry, and government or to continue in a broad range of Ph.D. programs. Specific career opportunities include positions as agricultural consultants, technical and sales representatives for industry, state departments of agriculture and USDA specialists, agricultural extension agents, industry research and environmental technicians.
The Master of Science degree program in Agricultural Biology is designed to produce graduates with the academic and research background needed to facilitate effective, innovative, and environmentally sound protection of plants and animals from a wide and varied spectrum of pests.
