Graduate Fields of Study in CALS

The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (Cornell CALS) offers research-centered (MS/PhD) advanced degrees in more than 30 fields of study and course-based professional master’s degrees in several key areas of specialization. While research-centered graduate degrees often lead to academic careers and scientific discovery, professional master’s degrees (MPS, MLA and MEng) are designed to enhance careers in industry, government and non-profit agencies.

Admissions decisions for all CALS graduate degrees are made by CALS graduate field faculty committees. The Cornell University Graduate School administers the application process for graduate programs at Cornell.
