Soil, Water, and Environmental Science - MS

Our Master of Science and Master of Agriculture degrees in soil, water and environmental sciences are multi-institutional, multi-disciplinary programs offered through the AG*IDEA consortium. The institutions collaborating for these degree programs include Auburn University, the University of Georgia, North Carolina State University and Texas Tech University. Both degree programs require 36 graduate credit hours, including a thesis (for the Master of Science) or special project (for the Master of Agriculture).
