About the courseStudy entomology, plant pathology, abiotic plant stress, or weed science in natural or agricultural ecosystems. Graduate students studying with faculty in Agricultural Biology perform research on questions ranging from the ecology of plant and insect invasions to molecular plant-microbe interactions. Our students may work in greenhouse or row crop production systems, on rangelands, on short grass prairies or in alpine meadows. The breadth of our department means that students gain knowledge, experience, and appreciation for fundamental and applied biology in many environments.Collaborate with university, state, federal, and industry scientists. For their research projects, our students may collaborate with scientists in start-up companies, in established companies (many started by our own alumni), or with scientists who work for multi-national corporations. They may also work with scientists in non-governmental organizations, including with CGIAR scientists. Graduate students in our department also have opportunities to work with colleagues in the many federal and state agencies located in or near Fort Collins. This includes the Colorado Department of Agriculture (CDA), the United States Department of Agriculture Agricultural Research Service (USDA, ARS) or the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (USDA, APHIS), the state and federal Forest Services (USFS), the United States Geological Survey (USGS), or the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).We offer M. S. and Ph.D. degrees in Bioagricultural Sciences. Graduate students at the masters and Ph.D. level can obtain a general degree in the area of expertise of their advisor (e.g., ecology, biodiversity, molecular biology), or explicitly concentrate on one of three disciplinary specializations: Entomology, Plant Pathology, and Weed Science.

AboutFounded in 1870 as the Colorado Agricultural College, Colorado State University is now among the nation’s leading research universities. The world-class research in infectious disease, atmospheric science, clean energy technologies, environmental science, and biomedical technology attracted more than 300 million in research funding annually. The professional programs in veterinary medicine, occupational therapy, journalism, agriculture and construction management are ranked among the nation’s best.
Colorado State is the “University of Choice” for Colorado residents, 30% of all of Colorado’s science, math, engineering and technology majors pursue degrees at CSU. To date, more than 230,000 undergraduate, graduate and professional degrees have been conferred at Colorado State.
Colorado, is situated on nearly 5,000 acres of land, including the main campus, a foothills campus, an agricultural campus, and a Mountain Campus. Colorado State also has 4,600 acres for research centers, Cooperative Extension offices, and Colorado State Forest Service stations. Fort Collins is an award-winning city located on the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains with the foothills and 14,000-foot peaks visible to residents.
