Minor in Landscape Design
The Landscape Design Minor in the Plant Science Department prepares students for the design of residential sites and small commercial projects.  Learning and applying basic design and graphic communication principles in the arrangement of plant material and hardscape elements, students learn to create cohesive landscape environments. Students majoring in Horticulture, Turf and Soil Science and Natural Resources Management and Engineering find this option particularly attractive because it opens additional avenues related to their chosen field.
