The MS and PhD programs in Plant Pathology are designed to facilitate the development of graduate student’s ability to conduct original research and to provide the basic background for a career in plant pathology or related disciplines. By its nature, plant pathology is a multidisciplinary field of study as it is engaged in understanding of the interactions of microbial pathogens, host plants and the environment. The programs in the department are engaged in both understanding the fundamental biology of the host-pathogen interaction as well as using research to develop new approaches to disease management.
