This minor is intended for students in other fields of study who have an interest in obtaining basic knowledge in the area of horticulture. It allows students to explore the art and science of growing plants and utilizing them in landscape designs. The students take fundamental courses in plant science, soil science, and plant identification. Students may then build off of this base of horticultural knowledge with elective courses that specialize in plant production, landscape design, or botany. Courses in this minor provide hands-on experience in horticultural facilities including the Roger Clapp Greenhouses, the Lyle E. Littlefield Gardens, and the Design Studio.
