Environmental Horticulture

Environmental horticulture is a branch of the broad field of horticulture that focuses on the art and science of floriculture (greenhouse management and interior design), landscape design and management, nursery management, turf management, and the development of recreational areas for public and private use.

UW-Platteville graduates that have completed a major in environmental horticulture qualify for positions in landscape design and management, greenhouse management, horticultural therapy, plant breeding and genetics, plant tissue culture and biotechnology, plant inspection, education and research. Our job placement rates have been outstanding, exceeding 95 percent since the inception of the program. Graduates may also wish to further their education by pursuing a graduate study.
