University of Illinois Off-Campus Courses, Spring 1998

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Office of Continuing Education and Public Service, in cooperation with UIUC academic departments, is offering several agriculture-related courses throughout Illinois during the spring semester, 1998. Although courses that focus on animal science, environmental education, food science, and horticulture also will be offered, only those that focus on field crops are listed here.

The Department of Crop Sciences now offers a nondegree Certificate of Completion option for those interested in increasing their knowledge of crop production. To receive the certificate, a student 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.
