Are you interested in improving food security and nutrition? Do you want to make food production more efficient and environmentally friendly? Are you fascinated by the development of disease- and pest-resistant crops? If so, you may want to consider CS + Crop Sciences (CS + CSPC).
The first degree of its kind, the CS + Crop Sciences major prepares students to pursue careers in agriculture with an emphasis on technology. More than ever before, agriculture relies on technologies such as GIS-based data gathering, drone-enabled soil and field analysis, the study of weather and climate, and molecular genetics, which all generate huge amounts of data. Learn about computational modeling and data collection, analysis, and management, in order to advance agricultural practices.
