The goals of the Landscape Horticulture and Design (LHD) major are to graduate students who are able to: evaluate sustainable practices related to the preservation of the environment; analyze the ways in which people, plants and soils interact with the overall environment so as to promote the conservation of natural resources; analyze plant and soil processes at the landscape scale; create clear and articulate oral and written presentations; analyze the role that plants and soils play in human experiences so as to promote the responsible management of the environment; and evaluate the applications of horticulture and design to the broader regional, national and global context. The LHD program is plant and soil based, offering a unique blend of quality design instruction with a major infusion of soils and plant materials. All students in the LHD major take a core group of courses, which includes basic chemistry, botany, ornamental horticulture, soil science, herbaceous plants and woody plants.
