Environmental Life Science
Welcome to the Environmental Life Sciences Division. If you enjoy working with plants and being outdoors, the ELS Division may help you find a career. Our division is divided into two programs. You can study for an Associate Degree in Applied Sciences in Turfgrass Management or Horticulture Technology. Both programs include actual hands-on experience and co-op work experience arranged and supervised by faculty and professional industry personnel. Turfgrass Management prepares you for jobs to keep some of the most beautiful golf courses and recreational sites in tip-top condition. Horticulture Technology offers training in landscape design, landscape maintenance, residential irrigation, nursery, and greenhouse industries.
