The Online M.S. Degree Program in Crop Sciences enables students to strengthen their education through part-time study, and most courses are now taught online using Elluminate software. Occasionally a site-based class may be offered or a Saturday class may be scheduled.

The program offers a wide range of courses from Crop Production to Plant Breeding, from Insect Pest Management to Plant Physiology, and from Herbicide Mode of Action to Crop Growth and Development.  It has a 30-year history of providing University of Illinois courses to agricultural professionals across Illinois, as well as in neighboring states.

Students can enroll in individual courses for personal or professional advancement or can apply for admission to the master's degree program in the Department of Crop Sciences. To date, hundreds of students have completed individual courses, and more than 140 students have received a master's degree. Students who successfully complete three qualifying online courses receive a Professional Development Certificate.

Courses in the Online M.S. Degree Program in Crop Sciences are offered in conjunction with the Department of Crop Sciences, the College of Agricultural, Consumer, and Environmental Sciences, and the Office of Continuing Education at the University of Illinois. Our classes are open to anyone with an interest in learning more about agriculture.
