Intercollege Degree Programs

Degrees offered by the College of Ag Sciences in partnership with other Penn State colleges.

Seven interdisciplinary paths in ecology, genetics, and plant biology that provide unique richness and perspective to your graduate school experience.

Bioinformatics and Genomics

Provides training in broad areas of computational, evolutionary, and functional genomics, with optional specialization in algorithms, computation, and statistical genomics.

Biotechnology

Provides broad knowledge and training in the science behind biotechnology, business and legal issues, and the associated ethical and social concerns.

Ecology

Emphasizes the properties of ecosystems with focused attention on interactions of single organisms, populations, and communities with their environment.

Energy, Environmental, and Food Economics

Provides state-of-the-art training in economics and quantitative methods as applied to energy economics, policy and systems, natural resources and the environment, and food industry organization.

Integrative and Biomedical Physiology

Uniquely focused on the study of integrative mechanisms of mammalian body systems at the molecular, cellular, tissue, and organ levels, and the application of that knowledge to study human diseases and conditions.

Molecular Cellular and Integrative Biosciences

Emphasizes transdisciplinary training that considers the whole organism and spans understanding from fundamental mechanisms of action at the molecular/cellular level of discovery to the function of the organism in its environment.

Neuroscience

Offers a broad focus on neuroscience with the opportunity for concentrated research in areas such as biochemistry, cell biology, embryology, genetics, immunology, pharmacology, and virology.

Plant Biology

Provides educational and research experience in molecular, cell, and evolutionary biology, biochemistry, biophysics, genetics and functional genomics, physiology, and root biology to help address issues such as global climate change, food insecurity, loss of biodiversity, and disease.
