Landscape, Nursery, and Greenhouse Management (120 Hours)

The Landscape, Nursery, and Greenhouse Management major is a horticulture-based program that prepares students for opportunities in landscape plant management and in the propagation, production, marketing, and use of potted crops, bedding plants, trees, shrubs, and cut flowers. 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 public gardens, aboretums, 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.
