Plants provide many practical and recreational benefits to society--whether it is the food we eat, the parks we play in, or the gardens we enjoy admiring. The horticulture minor is geared toward students who want to learn more about plants and their many, diverse uses in the landscape. Coursework is flexible and can easily be tailored to specific horticultural interests, including floriculture and nursery production, turfgrass science, landscape design and maintenance, fruit and vegetable production, sustainable and organic production practices, therapeutic horticulture, plant physiology, and genetics. Students wishing to complete a minor in horticulture should contact the Department of Horticultural Science, 305 Alderman Hall for assistance.
