Deadline to Apply for Fall 2016 | Ag Distance Education Degree Programs
July 17, 2015
If you have been thinking of enrolling in distance education, we have three great programs. We currently offer three graduate degree programs with both thesis and non-thesis options. Below is information about each program along with a link to the faculty coordinator for each program. Please see www.auburn.edu/agdistance for more information.
Agronomy and Soils | Master of Science & Master of Agriculture
Our distance education graduate degree in Agronomy and Soils is a 30 credit hour program that closely follows our campus program. The curriculum includes courses in soil, crop and weed sciences. Courses in entomology and plant pathology are also available. You have the option to earn a non-thesis, Master of Agriculture degree or a thesis-based, Master of Science degree. If you have questions specific to this program, you may address these to Dr. Dennis Shannon.
Soil, Water and Environmental Science | Master of Science and Master of Agriculture
The Master’s degree program in Soil, Water and Environmental Science is a 36 credit hour program taught as part of a consortium with three other universities. Both of these programs lead to either a non-thesis Master of Agriculture degree or a thesis-based Master of Science degree. You will be required to take at least 15 credits from four of the five core areas, which are soil chemistry, soil biology, soil physics, pedology and hydrology. It is also required that you take a statistics course, seminar and conduct a special project or thesis. You have the option to earn a non-thesis, Master of Agriculture degree or a thesis- based, Master of Science degree. If you have questions specific to this program, you may address these to Dr. Dennis Shannon.
Turfgrass Management | Master of Turfgrass Management
Our third program is an applied Master of Turfgrass Management degree. This is a 32 credit hour program and the only online Master’s program in Turfgrass Management that is specific to warm season grasses. You also have the option of simply enrolling in the Graduate School as a non-degree seeking student and take the courses that you want without pursuing a degree. This program offers a non-thesis Master of Turfgrass Management degree. If you have questions specific to this program, you may address these to Dr. David Han.
