Overview

About this Degree

Plant pathology is “biology with a purpose”: a highly dynamic science at the interface of microbiology, plant biology, molecular genetics, and production agriculture. The University of Georgia offers one of the best plant pathology graduate programs in the United States with a variety of opportunities for the motivated student interested in areas that range from applied, field-based research to lab-based approaches aimed at understanding pathogens and their interactions with host plants at the molecular level.

Plant Pathology at the University of Georgia offers three graduate programs: MS, PhD, and an interdisciplinary, non-thesis Master of Plant Protection and Pest Management degree (MPPPM). The department has a strong tradition in scholarship and an international reputation for cutting-edge research. Graduate students have the opportunity to specialize across the range of disciplines that comprise the contemporary field of plant pathology, including mycology, bacteriology, nematology, virology, genetics, molecular plant-microbe interactions, epidemiology, and integrated disease management. Our faculty work closely with each student to design an individualized program that meets the student’s career goals.
