Programs at U of I Department of Crop Sciences

New Biology Fellows is a program for students who are currently Sophomores and are interested in a summer Research Fellowship program. 


The Illinois Professional Science Master’s (PSM) offers M.S. degree programs combining science knowledge and business know-how. It is a non-thesis Masters program 

The programs are full-time, do not require a thesis, and are completed in 16-months—three semesters and one summer term.

The Illinois PSM is designed for those who want careers in science-based settings in positions that combine science with management and leadership responsibilities. Programs have solid core graduate-level curricula, integrated with business courses such as management and marketing, accounting and finance, and project management.

The Illinois PSM is built around four integrated learning components:

  • Science - the core of the program in a specific field of study;
  • Business - coverage of essential business knowledge and skills;
  • Industry seminar series - interaction with business experts and examination of current and emerging business issues;
  • Internships - hands-on work experience to support students’ personal and professional goals.
