Online Masters in Plant Science and Pest Management

The Horticulture Department enthusiastically supports the OMALS program. Our philosophy for this program is the same as with our MS and PhD graduate programs in that we wish to retain as much academic freedom as possible while providing a meaningful experience for the student. The subject and structure of the project and the nature of the proposal for the project will be determined by the advisor and the advisory committee. The degree is not intended to be a research-based Master of Science, so the project should not be considered a research thesis. The subject of the project can take many forms while still providing a good learning opportunity for the student. The department does not require a copy of the project proposal or of the final report.

Please see for a general description of the program.
