Welcome to the CGU Botany Department. In conjunction with the Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden, Claremont Graduate University offers master's and doctoral degrees in botany emphasizing systematics and evolution of higher plants. Subfields include monographic and revisionary studies, cytotaxonomy, molecular systematics, phylogenetics, plant anatomy and comparative morphology, ecology, plant geography, and reproductive biology.
The relatively small size of the Department of Botany (approximately 15 students), combined with CGU’s focus on post-baccalaureate degrees, make the program ideal for graduate study. Information about admission requirements and the application process may be found at Prospective Students.
