The biological sciences concentration is designed for students who plan to enter a graduate study program or who want professional positions that require more science than in included in the other concentrations. Students follow a first-year program of General Education courses similar to students in other Crop Sciences concentrations. Programs for the second, third, and fourth years are planned in consultation with the student's faculty advisor, in the area of biological sciences. Students and advisors are encouraged to consult individual graduate schools for the specific entrance requirements. Although flexibility in individual course selection is a characteristic of this concentration, graduation requirements are established by selection of elective courses.
