This minor is designed for students who desire a significant background in horticulture to support study and practice of their major field. Selection of additional courses beyond the core will depend on the student’s major and interests. Courses in the minor cannot be taken Credit/No Credit. At least six hours of the minor must be advanced (300- or 400-level) courses that are distinct from classes meeting requirements in the student’s major.

An undergraduate minor is a coherent program of study requiring some depth in the subject, but not as extensive of a program as the major, and allow students to gain expertise in an area secondary to their major. Our campus has more than 100 undergraduate minors to choose from. Most minors entail a comprehensive study of the discipline, rather than focusing on a narrow subfield of study. In general, minors consist of at least 16 and no more than 21 hours of coursework.
