Pre-Turfgrass and Landscape Management - Transfer Program

The turfgrass and landscape management industry is part of one of the fastest growing segments of the nation’s agricultural economy, often experiencing growth and expansion even during recessionary periods. Career opportunities in turfgrass and landscape management are wide ranging and diverse. They include the establishment and management of turfgrass and landscapes in courses, parks, schools and cemeteries. Additional opportunities are in the production of seed, sod, and nursery stock, the development of private landscape management businesses, and employment in municipal and state positions. Other areas include golf course and landscape design, marketing, and urban and environmental planning.

The following list of courses are recommended for the first four semesters of a turf/landscape management transfer program:

Additional Information:

Additional courses (in areas such as business and science) are available at UNO that will transfer for specific options at UNL. Required and elective courses vary with option, so students should consult with their UNO adviser and the UNL Undergraduate Catalog to carefully plan their course selections while at UNO.

Students should complete their mathematics sequence at UNO. Since certain options require calculus, students are encouraged to review the UNL Undergraduate Bulletin for requirements in specific majors of interest.

Required elective courses correlate to UNL Achievement-Centered Education Program categories; selected UNO courses in these categories should be verified for transfer approval prior to registration.
