Pursue your goals through purpose-driven science
The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) offers research-centered (MS/PhD) advanced degree programs in more than 30 fields of study and course-based professional master’s degree programs in several key areas of specialization.
While research-centered graduate degrees often lead to academic careers and scientific discovery, professional master’s degree programs (MPS, MLA and MEng) are designed to enhance careers in industry, government and nonprofit agencies.
Admissions decisions for all CALS graduate degree programs are made by CALS graduate field faculty committees. The Cornell University Graduate School administers the application process for graduate programs at Cornell.
Graduate study is organized using a field structure that spans departments and even disciplines, connected around a shared intellectual interest.
