Depending on the topic of study and funding source, students have a choice of obtaining a degree from the Department of Horticulture or the Institute of Plant Breeding, Genetics & Genomics.
Please note that these entities have different admission criteria, procedures and requirements for obtaining your degree. Please make sure you follow the appropriate procedures and deadlines.
2013 Update: We encourage students who are interested in persuing their graduate studies in our program to arrange visits to our facilities and/or try to speak to Dr. McGregor in person at conferences and meetings. Graduate assistanships are available for exceptional applicants interested in the application of molecular markers in watermelon breeding.
