Horticultural Science/Golf And Sports Turf Management

Welcome to the Horticultural Science/Golf And Sports Turf Management (HORT-AA) Program

The purpose of this program is to prepare students for transfer to a four-year institution after completion of two years at Pensacola State College. Landscape and Nursery Horticulture exposes students to the art and science of breeding, installing and maintaining plants that are used to enhance and improve the human environment. This inter-disciplinary program combines the study of landscape and nursery horticultural sciences with the study of business, management and communications.

Horticultural Science graduates look forward to careers as nursery managers/owners, landscape designers, garden magazine journalists, environmental restoration consultants, plant breeders/ inspectors and municipal horticulturalists. Golf and Sports Turf Management combines the study of grasses, soils, water and pests affecting turf with the study of business and management. Career opportunities include work with golf courses, athletic fields, lawn care companies, parks, agrichemical industries, cemeteries, environmental consulting firms, sod farms and governmental agencies, as well as preparation for graduate school. Job opportunities are plentiful for individuals with targeted educational backgrounds and experience in nursery and landscape management.

This program was developed with agreement from the University of Florida, Milton Campus. Two plus two scholarships between Pensacola State College and the University of Florida are available each year to graduating seniors.
