Agricultural Biology Sequential M.S. Degree Program 

Want to make a difference while working with plant, insect, and pathogen biology? 

Biologists with degrees in Pest Management work to sustain our food and fiber supply, provide bioagricultural security, and protect our natural ecosystems from pests, plant diseases, and weeds.

You can earn an M.S. in Pest Management in as little as one year in this sequential degree program and become qualified to work in numerous careers in food production.

Sequential degree programs partner an undergraduate and a graduate program within or between departments, programs, or SAUs in the same or differing colleges. The graduate degree will be awarded only after the award of the baccalaureate degree. Undergraduate students complete a SDP application created by the partnering undergraduate and graduate programs. The timing of the application and its requirements are defined by the partnering programs and include minimum requirements related to criteria such as recommendations, and research experience.

Visit the CSU Graduate School website to learn more about the program.
