Plant and Environmental Sciences (MS)
Areas of specialization within Plant and Environmental Sciences (PES) include Agronomy, Crop Improvement, Crop Physiology, Horticulture, Integrated Pest Management, Microbial Ecology, Plant Breeding, Plant Nutrient Management, Plant Physiology, Soil Science, Sustainable Agriculture, Turfgrass Science, and Weed Science. The MS degree requires a thesis. The non-thesis MS option is a terminal degree that may be suited for students who will pursue a career in business, education, or other areas that do not require substantial research experience.
Students with Baccalaureate degrees in Agronomy, Biology, Chemistry, Horticulture, Physics, Plant Sciences, Soil Sciences, or other related disciplines are welcome to pursue their graduate studies in PES at Clemson.
