Master's Program Coursework

  1. Curriculum for Plant Breeding and Genetics Option An interdisciplinary approach to applied plant breeding is the cornerstone of the Plant Breeding and Genetics option. After completing this degree, you will have gained fundamental knowledge in plant breeding that may be applied to a range of crops including annual and perennial horticultural crops, agronomic food and feed.
  2. A New COVID-19 Challenge: Mutations Rise Along With Cases. Mutations to the virus that causes COVID-19 are rapidly popping up and health officials say the pandemic.
  3. Genetics The study of the patterns of inheritance of specific traits, and how qualities or traits are transmitted from parents to offspring. See Behavioral genetics, Cancer genetics, Classic cytogenetics, Heredity, Inheritance, Medical genetics, Molecular cytogenetics, Pharmacogenetics, Reverse genetics, Trait, Variance.

Degree Program Requirements

Plant breeding is a critical tool in the fight for food security and responsible environmental stewardship in the 21st century. For more than one hundred years, Plant Breeding and Genetics at Cornell University has been widely recognized for developing novel breeding methodologies and discovering economically important genes and varieties.

M.S. students must have 30 credit hours to graduate comprised of:

21 hours of coursework, 12 of which are graduate level courses only (not from split undergraduate/graduate courses, e.g., 4100/6100). On the Program of Study form, please use * to designate 6000/7000 courses open only to graduate students.

Breeding

9 hours of research (6) and thesis writing (3)

The following courses are required for graduation:

  • one course of Research Seminar (PBGG/CRSS/HORT 8861)
  • one course of Plant Breeding (PBGG/CRSS/HORT 6140)
  • one course of Plant Breeding Practicum (PBGG/CRSS/HORT 6000)
  • one Statistics course (STAT 6315 or FANR 6750 or higher)

M.S. students can only transfer 6 graduate course credits from another institution. No more than 6 hours of research (PBGG 7000) will be counted as hours on your program of study.
