The M.S. degree in Plant, Soil, and Environmental Science may be earned for a program of study comprising at least 30 hours of work including credit for graduate thesis work, which constitutes a major portion of the degree program.
Graduate students working in the areas of plant, soil, and environmental sciences can earn the Master of Science degree through the Plant, Soil and Environmental Sciences program of The University of Maine.
Several of our faculty have cooperating appointments in other departments, providing some of our students with additional degree options. Graduate training programs in these areas are built from foundations in soil science, agronomy, plant physiology, ecology, microbiology, plant pathology, and statistics. Prospective graduate students should have completed course work in chemistry, mathematics, and biology, and in subject matter areas closely related to interests of the student and his/her advisor.
