Agronomy

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Students who wish to learn the science behind farming and agriculture may want to complete a program in agronomy. This type of program focuses on studying the scientific aspects of plants and soil. Courses may include crop genetics, natural resource management and organic chemistry.
