Plant Sciences at UW

Welcome to the Department of Plant Sciences at the University of Wyoming.

If you are interested in a career where you can help feed a growing population and improve the quality of the environment, then have a look at our Bachelor of Science program in Agroecology. We also offer a minor in Agroecology for students in other majors, as well as minors in Horticulture, and Plant Protection for students in any major.

Our graduates are poised to take a wide variety of jobs.  Nearly all of these jobs are challenging, rewarding, family-friendly, and never routine.  

Our courses cover a wide array of plant related topics: agronomy, crops (fruits, grains, vegetables), plant diseases, food production, forages, greenhouse environments, ornamental horticulture, invasive species, organic production, plant physiology, water, and weeds. Most importantly, the Agroecology program focuses on how these topics are inter-related.

As a student, you and your advisor will select your courses that match your career interests.  But one theme holds true throughout, and that is sustainability. 

Sustainable agroecology is management of plant-based systems that are environmentally safe, profitable, and sociologically and consumer friendly and we emphasize all aspects of sustainability.

If you want to make a difference in your local community or worldwide, please check us out.
