Minor in Green Technology (20 credits)

Green Technology Minor: As individuals, businesses, and communities seek solutions to pressing environmental concerns, the green technology minor is positioned as an emerging source of innovation, entrepreneurialism, and action toward the development of sustainable land use practices. This minor seeks to provide students with a broad-based education in preparation for careers in landscape-related industries such as contracting, maintenance, nursery production, and garden-center operations. While covering pragmatic issues associated with the maintenance and management of gardens and properties, the curriculum also gives students opportunities to study best practices and new approaches to on-site storm water management, energy production, and healthy ecological systems.
