Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, VA, has a mycology section within their 
Biology Department. A person could get a graduate degree in mycology if 
accepted into the program.  There is also an undergraduate level course 
in mycology offered and they use David Arora's book as the text.  The 
professor in charge of the mycology section is none other than Orson K. 
Miller, author of several important mycological texts such as Mushrooms 
of North America.
