About the Programme
In general, botany is the scientific study of plants. This could include a look at classification, distribution, structure, genetics, physiology or ecology. Some courses might even focus on plant life in a particular area, geological period or habitat. A Master in Botany often incorporates lab work and research. The required courses for this postgraduate degree will vary based on the specific area of study and the school you wish to attend but could include plant ecology, plant systematics, plant physiology, mycology, developmental plant anatomy and comparative morphology of vascular plants.
