With faculty members located on three campuses (Athens, Tifton, and Griffin), we are one of the larger Departments of Plant Pathology in the country. We provide high-quality graduate and undergraduate education; conduct innovative research into the causes, nature, and management of plant disease; and help growers in Georgia and across the nation manage diseases through relevant and dynamic extension and outreach efforts.

We are especially proud of our vibrant graduate program. In addition to the research-based MS and PhD degrees in Plant Pathology, an interdisciplinary, non-thesis Master of Plant Protection and Pest Management (MPPPM) is offered. We provide exceptional opportunities for students who are interested in understanding how basic biological principles are applied to the science of plant pathology so diseases can be understood and managed for the benefit of agriculture, industry, science, and society.
