DESCRIPTION: The Bachelor of Applied Horticulture provides a course of study for students who have completed the Associate of Applied Science in Horticulture Technology and wish to complete a bachelor's degree in their chosen field. The program builds upon the knowledge acquired in the associate's degree and aid students in the development of managerial level expertise in such areas as landscape architecture, urban ecology, sports turf management, landscape design, plant propagation and nursery operations. This degree is designed to increase the student's potential by emphasizing technical application and theory, while the liberal education requirements will increase the student's ability to understand the environment in which he or she is working. Expanded internship offerings and specific targeted practicum areas for student exploration are promoted. The program is offered at the Salem campus.

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES:
Landscape architects held about 28,000 jobs in 2006. More than 1 out of 2 landscape architects were employed in architectural, engineering, and related services. State and local governments employed approximately 6 percent of all landscape architects. About 2 out of 10 landscape architects were self-employed.

Employment of landscape architects is concentrated in urban and suburban areas throughout the country; some landscape architects work in rural areas, particularly those employed by the Federal Government to plan and design parks and recreation areas.
