Department Website psc.usu.edu/mpsh

This on-line, professional (classes and internship only) master of professional studies in horticulture has a required 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 courses serve to increase student knowledge of landscape water use and conservation techniques that can be meshed with more broad-based knowledge of how to develop, market, and manage a landscape water conservation program.

Using water efficiently in the landscape is a multi-faceted issue involving biology, design, engineering, politics, law, natural resources, history, psychology, economics, and social science. The purpose of this degree is to create horticulturists with an understanding of the complexity of water management and the ability to convey this to the public. These skills are currently in demand by the water industry.
