College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences
  • Students will no longer be accepted into this program after Summer 2009. Program requirements below are for current students only.
  • Program Type: Baccalaureate
  • Requirements for this program are current for Spring 2012
  • Required credits to graduate with this degree: 120
  • Required credits within the major: 47 to 73
  • Degree: Bachelor of Science
The environmental horticulture major educates and prepares students in all phases of horticulture: crop and plant production; education (botanic gardens and arboreta); service oriented activities (landscaping and landscape maintenance); plant use and function (design, reclamation, and restoration); and recreation (golf courses and parks). Students gain experience in the use of plants to alter environments, restore damaged landscapes, improve the health and well-being of individuals, educate people about science and agriculture, improve community environments, and provide recreational and practical benefits to the public. Students choose either a business or science option. Landscape design, a joint offering with the College of Design (CDES), combines architecture and landscape architecture courses available in CDES with the plant-based design courses available in CFANS.
Program Delivery
This program is available:
  • via classroom (the majority of instruction is face-to-face)
