The Department of Crop Sciences offers an Off-Campus Graduate Studies
(OCGS) Program to provide agricultural professionals with access to University
of Illinois crops, soils, and horticulture courses. These courses offer
not only an opportunity to increase knowledge and skill levels in a wide
variety of agronomic topics, but also a chance to interact with other leaders
in the industry. Courses may be taken individually for personal or professional
development, and students who take three courses may qualify for a Professional
Development Certificate. Students who apply and are accepted into the Graduate
College may be eligible for a Master’s degree in Crop Sciences. All
classes are approved for Continuing Education Credits for those individuals
who are Certified Crop Advisers, and some courses are approved for biological
science credit for high school teachers.
Classes are offered during one weekday evening per week, and occasionally on weekends, at various statewide locations. Current course sites include Malta, Kewanee, Springfield, and Champaign.
