Turfgrass management

The turfgrass management option is intended primarily for students who are interested in managing golf courses, athletic fields, commercial turf properties, sod farms or any other facilities comprised primarily of turf.  Students in this option will gain competencies in all aspects of turf production and management, with a focus on sustainable practices and integrated pest management systems. Additionally, students interested in landscape management may also fall under this option but may take slightly different concentration courses which will address some of the other aspects of managing large, heterogeneous landscape properties. These students may also take a number of classes in the Landscape Architecture program, which can fulfill their supporting electives.
