Plant Sciences B.S.

Ornamental Horticulture

The ornamental horticulture option is intended primarily for students who are interested in nursery management, greenhouse production, the floral industry and the production and management of woody and herbaceous materials for landscapes and urban areas.  Students in this option will develop a wide set of skills allowing them to work in a diverse number of industries where ornamental plant production and management are practiced. Students interested in landscape management can also select this option, instead of the turfgrass management option, if their interests are focused more on trees than on turf.  As with the turfgrass management option, these students may also take Landscape Architecture classes to fulfill supporting electives.
