Ethnobotany Education and Training Program Information

Undergraduate students engage in field research and laboratory studies. Students looking to study ethnobotany at the graduate level might find some courses available as part of a degree program in a related field, such as botany or ecology. Though programs are extremely rare, interested students can earn a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Ethnobotany. While botany encompasses the study of plants and plant evolution, ethnobotany focuses specifically on the human-plant relationship. Programs primarily focus on plant use and evolution throughout ancient and modern times through laboratory studies and field research. Graduate School: A Senior's Torment.

As I mentioned previously I am applying to graduate school this semester to (hopefully) get into a Master's Program.

Graduate School: A Senior's Torment

I'm very interested in continuing my education in Plant Sciences as I feel I have yet to have a chance to fill that during my time here in Kirksville. I have had some courses in plant sciences like Local Flora, etc but I would like to actually spend more time on it because I love it. As you can tell by this blog, I am more interested in the Ethnobotanical side of Plant Biology but there are few programs out there in Ethnobotany. So to get there, I'm going to get my Master's degree to get my foot in the door so maybe one day I may be able to study this field more. But first is applying to graduate school.

The Ethnobotany program is an interdisciplinary major that allows students to integrate science and culture as a way of understanding human reliance on plants and the environment.

After obtaining a background in plant sciences, biogeography and cultural studies, students choose a track to follow within the major dependent on their particular interest. There are three concentrations within this major: The pharmacological concentration was developed to provide students with the courses necessary to advance in the fields of medicine and herbalism. Students in this track will receive a strong education in chemistry to strengthen their understanding of how the chemical constituents of plants react with the human body. The biogeography concentration allows students to explore the connection between plants and the physical environment.

The cultural perspectives concentration was designed for students with an interest in discovering how culture effects human use of the environment. Incredible Edibles - James Wong.

The program will be the first ethnobotany degree program in the United States and will fulfill a local and national demand that has been steadily growing over the past 15 years. UH Mānoa is currently the leading center for ethnobotanical research in the Pacific. The aim of the program is to become the leading center for ethnobotanical research in the world. Offered by the College of Natural Sciences‘ Department of Botany at UH Mānoa, the program is already in high demand. Ethnobotany is a botanical science focusing on cultural interactions with plants.

Why Study Anthropology Anthropology involves the study of present and past human culture and biology to better understand the human species.

With diverse but overlapping subfields, including archaeological, biological, sociocultural, linguistic, and applied anthropology (including cultural resource management), anthropology spans the social, behavioral, and natural sciences as well as humanities, providing a strong core to a liberal arts education. Whether studying the diversity of marriage customs in human societies, anatomical changes in the foot during human evolution, biocultural factors contributing to chronic disease, cultural and biological changes surrounding the transition to agriculture, or the origins of language, anthropologists are united in trying to understand who we are, where we come from, and where we are going in the future.
