Utah State University's Plant, Soils and Climate Department offers a Masters Degree of Professional Studies in Horticulture (MPSH) with a specialization in water efficient landscaping. The primary purpose of the MPSH is to prepare students for positions in urban water conservation, with a focus on urban landscape water management. The program is designed to create horticulturists with an understanding of the complexity of water management and the ability to convey this to the public.
Most of the coursework for the program is currently available online, and the entire program will be available as an online program in Spring of 2016. For more information about the program, please visit the Plants, Soils and Climate Masters of Professional Studies in Horticulture (MPSH) web page.
Because USU’s MPSH program with a specialization in water-efficient landscaping is designated as a Western Regional Graduate Program, students from participating western states qualify for in-state tuition. For more information, visit wrgp.wiche.edu.
