About the course
Crop improvement, whether through traditional breeding or genetic engineering, is one of the most important drivers of agricultural improvements. New technologies enable us to develop crop varieties that are more nutritious, resilient to climate change, and disease resistant. Career opportunities are available in both the public and private sectors, including basic research, plant breeding, product development, sales, and many other areas. In this major, youll focus on field crops and soils, learning the foundation sciences underlying the production and management of food, feed, and energy crops to meet human needs and protect the environment. Special emphasis is placed on production efficiency and the conservation of soil, energy, plants, and water. Youll get broad-based coverage of natural and social sciences, communication skills, and opportunities to explore interests and leadership potential.
