Few courses are required; a student's curriculum is tailored to his or her interests within general program requirements. For the master's degree without thesis, 31 course credits and 1 credit for a paper are required. For the master's degree with thesis, 26 course credits, 6 research credits, and a research thesis are required. For the doctoral degree, a minimum of 32 course credits plus a minimum of 34 research credits, for a total of 72 credits, a research dissertation, and one academic year in residence are required. There is no language requirement.

In addition to the graduate courses described in A Guide to the Graduate Program in Plant Biology, courses listed under Biochemistry 115, Ecology and Evolution 215, Microbiology and Molecular Genetics 680, Statistics 960, or other appropriate programs may also be taken. Many advanced undergraduate courses (400 level) may be used for graduate credit.
