Bachelor of Science in Integrated Plant Sciences

IPS majors explore the science of plant development and production from the perspectives of a variety of disciplines. All students in the program take a core set of interdisciplinary courses selected specifically to give them a solid foundation on which they can build expertise in a specific discipline. There are seven majors from which to choose.

Extracurricular Activity

Students are required to participate in undergraduate research projects, work as part-time employees with research and extension personnel, and/or participate in professional internships to put their classroom training to work. Student clubs also provide a variety of ways to interact with peers, faculty, and staff within the college.

Scholarships & Certification

Scholarships for IPS majors are available on a competitive basis and are awarded based on ability, need, and interest in a career path in plant sciences. In order to certify in an IPS major, a student must have a minimum of 24 credits with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0. For more information visit the CAHNRS Scholarship page.

Transfer Students

Students planning to transfer into the IPS program should take courses that meet the university’s general education requirements (UCORE), and that also meet the IPS core requirements when possible. Students are strongly encouraged to consult with an advisor within the IPS program for further guidance.
