Turfgrass Science - BS

Curriculum in Turfgrass Science is administered by the Department of Soil and Crop Sciences. Students following this curriculum develop and utilize basic scientific knowledge to understand the most fundamental resources—turfgrass, soils, and water—and the interaction of these resources in different environmental settings. The required courses provide an essential foundation, while the elective courses (i.e., ornamental horticulture, plant protection, business, landscape architecture) can be selected to meet the interests, needs and objectives of individual students.

Turfgrass Science prepares graduates for careers in: management—golf courses, athletic fields, public, private or commercial grounds; production agriculture—turfgrass production, or plant breeding; agribusiness—seed sales, turf equipment and supplies, landscape contractor, commercial or home lawn care specialists; education—consulting, extension, or public relations.
