Landscape Management Minor

The Landscape Management minor provides students with a foundation in plant sciences and business management.  The required science courses lead to an integrative understanding of plant growth and development and the plant’s responses to its environment.  These courses also teach students the skills needed to recommend best management practices and to identify plant abnormalities in the landscape.  The business courses in this minor foster an understanding of the business structure, human resource management and financial management associated with landscape management companies. 

The landscape industry has a strong demand for landscape management graduates.  Local, regional and national landscape contracting companies have been experiencing annual growth rates of 20 percent.  As a result there are significantly more jobs available than there are graduates trained in this field.  Offering a minor in this discipline will enable more University of Maryland students to take advantage of these career opportunities.

Look over the Advising Sheet for Landscape Management Minor to review the requirements for this minor.
