Second, it provides a directed sequence of interdisciplinary courses in the area of landscape studies for students who wish to broaden their knowledge of this subject. Third, it serves as a method of exploring landscape professions for those students who are considering this career path or further study at the graduate level.

Students interested in declaring this minor should contact the Department and arrange to meet with the coordinator of the minor. The program requires successful completion of 22 semester hours with a 2.00 GPA. All courses must be taken for a letter grade.
