Continuing Education

The Office of Continuing Education, in conjunction with the College of ACES offers many opportunities for the adult learner to continue their education, both through degree offerings and non-credit workshops and certificates. One of the degree options is the Off-Campus Graduate Studies (OCGS) Program in Crop Sciences. This program enables students to strengthen their education through part-time study at various locations around the state of Illinois. The program has a thirty-year history of providing University of Illinois courses to agri-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 Crop Sciences. To date, hundreds of students have completed individual courses, and over 120 students have received a Master’s degree. Students who successfully complete three qualifying OCGS courses receive a Professional Development Certificate. The Off-Campus Graduate Studies Program in Crop Sciences also works in conjunction with the Natural Resources and Environmental Studies M.S. program, and the Agriculture Education Off-campus M.S. program.
