Option Comprehensive Botany Undergraduate Option  

   Print Version Print

This option is offered within the following major(s):
Botany - College of Agricultural Sciences



The Comprehensive Botany option is aimed at the student who wants broadly-based and high-level botanical knowledge and skills appropriate for botany careers and graduate education.



The Comprehensive Botany option requires 16–17 credits of 400-level BOT courses that provide a broad and sophisticated education in the five learning objectives of the botany core: structure, systematics, ecology, physiology, and genomics (list A). These courses cover aquatic botany, a second course in non-vascular plants, plant population ecology, environmental physiology/photobiology, and genome-enabled plant biology. Students choose an additional 4–5 credits of course work with permission of the advisor. These courses may be BOT advanced courses or courses in other departments (e.g., BI, BB, CROP, CSS, HORT, PBG). Up to 3 credits of approved Experiential Learning can also be applied to the option.
