Minor, Certificate and Area of Emphasis

Depending on whether a student wishes to dig deeper into plant pathology or gain a broad-based educational experience in Plant Health Management, the department offers a Minor in Plant Pathology and an Interdisciplinary Certificate in Plant Health Management.  In addition, we participate in the ‘Plants and Microbes’ Area of Emphasis in the Plant Biology undergraduate major.
