Is a degree in plant biology the same thing as a degree in botany?

I will be attending college as an undergraduate soon to ultimately earn a bachelors degree in plant science/botany. Different colleges refer to the class as either plant biology or botany. I know they are pretty much the same thing but I am really just wondering if there is any difference in a degree between botany and plant biology. I've heard that plant biology is more broad than botany? Please reply and all will be awarded thumbs up and I will award best answer.
