Prepare for Success

To be successful in the program, you should have a strong interest in science, a concern for people and the environment, and a desire to solve key challenges in agricultural and environmental sustainability. You also must develop strong analytical, critical-thinking, computer and communications skills.
Our students have diverse undergraduate backgrounds, including geology, microbiology, chemistry, soil science, plant science, environmental science, natural resources, and biological and agricultural engineering.

Your First Year

Tailor your study plan to your specific professional goals. During your first semester, we'll work with you and your adviser to assemble a three-member (master's) or four-member (doctorate) graduate committee, which may include faculty members from both the University of Idaho and Washington State University. This committee assesses your background, interests and goals, and then defines a study plan for you.
