Masters Programs

Agricultural and Environmental Education (MAEE)

The Master of Agricultural and Environmental Education (MAEE) degree develops professionals to lead, teach and communicate about food, the environment, and social systems. Candidates must complete an approved program of 36 semester hours of graduate work. Thesis and non-thesis options are available. The entire degree can be taken online or online with some face-to-face courses for busy working adults. Many MAEE students are working professionals and can complete the degree with very few trips to Athens, Ga. There are two faculty members in Tifton who can serve on your graduate committee if you are closer to Tifton. Applications are accepted for Fall and Spring admission. 

A teacher certification option is available, however students pursuing certification will complete 45 hours of course work consisting of 36 hours for the Master’s degree, plus an additional 9 hours of student teaching that does not count toward the 36.

Plant Protection & Pest Management (Entomology; MPPPM)

The Master of Plant Protection and Pest Management (MPPPM) is a non-thesis professional Master’s degree program between the departments of Entomology, Crop and Soil Sciences, and Plant Pathology. The MPPPM program is not a research-oriented degree, but graduates have successfully pursued Ph.D. degrees related to IPM. There is no thesis requirement in MPPPM, but an IPM-oriented internship is part of the program of
study. MPPPM graduates are trained for employment as IPM professionals in the pest control industry, pesticide and fertilizer services, cooperative extension, and regulatory agencies.
