This minor gives students a broad overview of the many areas that are encompassed by plant sciences. It includes several lab classes which allow hands-on experience in the identification, production and anatomical study of a wide-range of herbaceous and woody plants. The required courses cover both basic and applied sciences. Elective courses allow the individual to choose from courses focusing on plants in natural ecosystems, in the managed ecosystems of farms, greenhouses and nurseries, or in the laboratory.
