Applied Plant Science

Troy McQuillen

"I'm always sending students to Fayette to further their education. Upper Iowa has an altogether great atmosphere for learning. It's nice to have a campus all in one spot, and it's so easy to communicate with everyone - from admissions to financial aid to faculty - everyone. I got that vibe right away when I went up for orientation."

Class of 2006
Applied Plant Science Major
Instructor at Kirkwood Community College, Cedar Rapids, Iowa

The major in applied plant science is structured as a "2+2" program offered in conjunction with cooperating community colleges. Students who enroll in this major first will complete an approved two-year program at a community college leading to an A.A.S. degree in golf course, turfgrass or grounds management, landscape design, horticulture, floriculture or a related field. Students then will transfer to Upper Iowa University for the next two years to fulfill the necessary general education and major requirements leading to a bachelor's degree in applied plant science.

The major in applied plant science is designed to enhance the career opportunities available for individuals who earn a two-year degree in a specialized area of agronomy or horticulture by reinforcing training in communications and business skills and by providing a solid background in the theory and principles of the soil and plant sciences.
