Return to Programs of Study Return to: Programs of Study

(G): 328

This program provides the student with a comprehensive mixture of academic and practical training in the field of ornamental horticulture. The flexible curriculum can accommodate career interests in either landscape contracting or design. Students will learn to design and draft landscape plans; install, construct, and maintain landscapes; and identify, select, and plant woody and herbaceous plants.

Career opportunities include positions as landscape supervisors, nursery managers, landscape contractors, and landscape designers. This program will also serve to expand the knowledge and skills of persons already working in the profession and give the student enough knowledge and experience to establish a private landscape, grounds maintenance, nursery, or greenhouse business.

Courses include those general subjects required for graduation (General Education foundation and distribution requirements); those necessary for acquiring landscaping fundamentals (core requirements); and those that reinforce the student’s area of interest (landscape contracting or landscape design). This program is approved by the Landscape Contractors Association.
