Join us to explore biological questions in entomology, plant pathology, weed science, and abiotic plant stresses. 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.
Our students from the M.S. degree in Bioagricultural Sciences, Plant Pathology Specialization at Colorado State University become well-prepared to help solve the most complex and pressing problems related to food security and ecosystem sustainability.
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.
