Botany Student Handbook
The WSU Career Services' website includes a career information by college page to provide science majors with information about career options, including those involving post-baccalaureate education. The career counselor for the sciences is Greg Nielsen.
The University of Oklahoma has a good answer to the question, "What can I do with a major in Botany?"
Visit the Botanical Society of America website for the online version of their brochure, Careers in Botany.
Dr. Catharina Coenen at Allegheny College maintains a web page on Career Considerations for Plant Biologists.
You can visit the USDA web site for information on employment with the Forest Service, Natural Resources Conservation Service, the Agricultural Research Service, and other USDA agencies.
From July 2001 through May 2002, Plant Physiology published two or three articles a month in which a wide variety of individuals reflected on their diverse careers in the plant sciences. (Plant Physiology is published by the American Society of Plant Biologists.) In a similar vein, the Annual Review of Plant Biology (formerly the Annual Review of Plant Physiology and Plant Molecular Biology and even more formerly the Annual Review of Plant Physiology) always opens with a "career reflection" piece by a prominent plant physiologist. (The Stewart Library has print copies and electronic access to both Plant Physiology and the miscellaneous incarnations of the annual review.)
The Botany Department faculty and staff are all happy to talk with you about your future career goals and plot a curriculum to meet those goals.
You should check the postings in the Majors' Room (SL423) regularly for current job openings, graduate school opportunities, and summer internships.
