Environmental Horticulture Minor
By completing the minor in Environmental Horticulture, students will gain knowledge of several aspects of horticultural production systems. The required course provides theoretical and applied knowledge in plant science. Students will get more in-depth knowledge by taking additional coursework focused on botany, various crop production systems, or integrated pest management strategies.
Our environmental horticulture students study the science and art of cultivating plants, and the many ways that plants enhance the human experience. The cultivation of fruits, vegetables and ornamental plants is key to solving many of the major challenges facing the world; such as producing food to meet the needs of an ever-growing population while conserving land, water, and soil resources. An understanding of these challenges and potential solutions can enhance any career. A minor in environmental horticulture may complement any major field of study.
