Notes

Students must earn a grade of "C" or better for all courses required within the program. The course SSH111 cannot be used to satisfy both the Humanities and Fine Arts and Social and Behavioral Sciences areas.

In addition, the program helps prepare students for careers with local, state, and federal government agencies involved with the technical phases of the Urban Horticulture industry. The curriculum combines coursework in horticulture with General Education components.
