Possible Minors for Agronomy or Horticulture Master's of Science (MS) Students

Master's degree students pursuing the Option II (project) track are required to have a minor by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. A minor is a minimum of 9 credit hours in classes from a University of Nebraska-Lincoln major area.  Students may not develop their own minors as the minors are approved by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Board of Regents.

Master's degree students pursuing the Option I (thesis) track are not required to have a minor, but they may have one if approved by their advisor or graduate committee.
