The online catalog includes the most recent changes to courses and degree requirements that have been approved by the Faculty Senate, including changes that are not yet effective. Courses showing two entries of the same number indicate that the course information is changing. The most recently approved version is shown first, followed by the older version, in gray, with its last-effective term preceding the course title.

Nursery and Greenhouse Management(120 Hours)

The Nursery and Greenhouse Management major is a horticulture-based program that prepares students for opportunities in plant propagation, the production and marketing of potted crops, bedding plants, trees, shrubs, and cut flowers, and in landscape plant management. This is an exciting major for students interested in owning or managing a nursery or greenhouse, attending graduate school in horticulture, working for university extension offices and research greenhouses, maintaining landscapes and parks, or working as wholesale horticultural-product brokers. Students in this major are encouraged to gain hands-on experience and earn scholarships through participation in the Horticulture Club.
