Landscape, Nursery, and Greenhouse Management

The Nursery and Greenhouse Management major is a horticulture-based program that prepares students for opportunities in plant propagation, the production and marketing of potted crops, bedding plants, trees, shrubs, and cut flowers, and in landscape plant management. This is an exciting major for students interested in owning or managing a nursery or greenhouse, attending graduate school in horticulture, working for university extension offices and research greenhouses, maintaining landscapes and parks, or working as wholesale horticultural-product brokers. Students in this major are encouraged to gain hands-on experience and earn scholarships through participation in the Horticulture Club.

Learn it. Grow it. Manage it.
