Botany studies the essential relationship between human life and growing plant life. It’s a broad field that includes ecology, field study, plant structure and patterns, and experimentation. In your botanical research you’ll learn about the key roles plants play in the ecosystem, conservation efforts, public health, and environmental protection. You’ll enjoy small lectures and labs with faculty who are passionate about teaching.
