These programs provide training in all aspects of Plant Science including agronomy, biodiversity, biotechnology, crop quality, horticulture, plant breeding, plant ecology, plant pathology, plant physiology, and weed science. Many members of non-university institutions on campus, including Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and the Plant Biotechnology Institute/NRC are Adjunct Professors.Graduate students may also carry out their thesis research in these institutions.

A dual degree Ph.D. program in Plant Sciences is offered in partnership with United Graduate School of Agriculture Sciences (UGAS), Iwate University, Japan. A dual degree program allows a student to pursue graduate studies at two universities, satisfying both institution’s admission and degree requirements, and a thesis co-supervised by faculty at each institution. Students receive a degree from both universities. Students should contact the college for further information.
