Graduate level courses across multiple disciplines, extensive internships and a research project make up requirements for the Doctor of Plant Health (DPH) degree.

Internships for credit can be internal or external to the university, such as with the private sector, non-governmental organizations and state or federal government.

Research projects may be with university personnel or off-campus collaborators. Research projects and comprehensive exam are to be determined by the

student's advisory committee.

Students with an appropriate background should expect to complete this program within four years.
