The program emphasizes the conservation of resources through proper plant management.
Students must have a high-school diploma or the equivalent and they must have completed all course prerequisites before enrolling in any course. Applicants also must have a basic understanding and/or coursework in biology, botany, chemistry or zoology, or permission of the department.
