Environmental Horticulture Science encompasses the portion of the horticulture industry focused on improving the human environment such as turfgrass management, and the propagation, production and management of ornamental plants. An Environmental Horticulture Science minor supplements any major requiring knowledge of plant growth, physiology or production, as well as business majors considering administration in the horticulture industry. The Plant Sciences and Plant Pathology Department has a certifying officer for the Environmental Horticulture Science Minor to help students decide whether this option is appropriate.
