Welcome to the Department of Plant Biology at the University of Georgia. The Plant Biology major is aimed at giving students a broad understanding of plant and/or fungal biology relevant to current environmental and societal challenges, and thus relevant to jobs. The plant biology major includes several core classes similar to a biology major (e.g. genetics, evolution) but provides the flexibility to build an interdisciplinary program of study from a broader range of courses and pursue an emphasis in either ecology/environment or biotechnology/bioinformatics/genomics.
