Did you know the Department of Crop and Soil Sciences offers two undergraduate certificates, which can be completed entirely online?

The University Certificate in Crop Science provides an undergraduate course of study in the fundamentals of crop science. The courses in the program cover the importance of agronomic crops for the state and national economy; the interaction of agronomic growth, development and yield with environmental factors; sound and sustainable production systems for agronomic crops; scientific and societal issues related to biotechnology applications in crop production; and the marketing and distribution of these crops and their relation to overcoming world hunger.

The Undergraduate Certificate in Soil Science online program offers a course of study that enables students to obtain the minimum 15 credit hours of soil science courses that are required to become a licensed soil scientist in some states or, nationally, a certified professional soil scientist. In addition, the program provides subject area credits necessary to qualify for soil scientist and conservationist positions in the federal, state and local governments.
