University of Illinois Off-Campus Courses, Fall 1997

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Office of Continuing Education and Public Service, in cooperation with other UIUC departments, is offering several agriculture-related courses at various locations throughout Illinois during the fall semester 1997. Although courses that focus on animal science, food science, horticulture, and nutrition also will be offered, only those that focus upon field crops and soils are listed here.

The Department of Crop Sciences now offers a nondegree Certificate of Completion option for persons interested in increasing their knowledge of crop production. To receive a Certificate of Completion, students must have a B.S. degree in crop sciences, or a related field, and successfully complete two 300-level courses and one 400-level course, other than Agronomy 493 (Special Problems), in crop production and related topics.
