Crop improvement, whether through traditional breeding or genetic engineering, is one of the most important drivers of agricultural improvements.
New technologies enable us to develop crop varieties that are more nutritious, resilient to climate change, and disease resistant.
Career opportunities are available in both the public and private sectors, including basic research, plant breeding, product development, sales, and many other areas.

Successful students will achieve:
- Technical competencies, including knowledge and understanding of soil and crop science principles, the ability to apply these principles to specific issues, and the ability to synthesize information (both technical and non-technical) to meet identified needs.
- Problem solving skills, such as identifying a problem, collecting data, summarizing information, and drawing conclusions.
- Professional interpersonal and communication skills, such as presenting a topic with logical development, technical understanding, mechanical and technique correctness, and accurate documentation of sources.
The demand for students with training in soil and crop sciences has never been greater. The agricultural sector is undergoing rapid change as we enter the era of big data and embrace new technologies.
“My experience at CSU, and particularly in the Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology has been invaluable! The program was both challenging and supportive.”
