About

On the Plant Sciences program from University of Wyoming, the goal is to provide students with an applied education that emphasizes the functional relationships between the broad array of scientific disciplines required to produce crops in a sustainable manner.

Overview

We define sustainable agriculture as utilizing production practices that meet the needs of today, while not compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. 

Development and application of sustainable production practices requires a breadth of knowledge about how these practices influence other aspects of the agroecosystem. 

A graduate degree in Plant Sciences from the University of Wyoming  will equip students with the skills and knowledge necessary to obtain fulfilling positions in academia, industry, or the public sector.

The Plant Sciences faculty prides itself on our approach to graduate education and the individualization of graduate programs. We have high expectations of ourselves as well as our students. We view graduate education as a collaboration between our faculty and our graduate students. We feel this approach is critical to developing students into scientists.

Career

Agronomy Graduate Student and FacultyGraduate students are considered members of the Department of Plant Sciences, and as such they are expected to contribute to the mission of the department in the areas of teaching, research, and extension. Research conducted in our department should be made available to our stakeholders through many communication channels. 

Therefore, it is expected that graduate students present the results of their research at extension field days or other venues when appropriate. Writing research results for distribution in the form of extension publication is also a common expectation of graduate students in our department. 

These writing and presentation experiences will help develop skills that will be valuable for the student regardless of their chosen career path.
