Abstract/Contents:Profiles the turfgrass and landscape management degree program at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL). States that "Professor Kim Todd suggested the idea of a major involving turfgrass and landscape management. She felt it would be beneficial for students to have exposure to both subject areas, because turfgrasses and landscape plants are so closely integrated in the green industry." Explains that "the purpose of the proposed degree program is to provide students with education and skills based on science and design in the management of turfgrass and landscape plants in a comprehensive set of situations, and pertinent business aspects related to careers in the industry." Suggests that "this proposed major is unique among institutions across the country. Certainly, other institutions offer degree programs in either turfgrass management or landscape management, but they do not offer the interactive aspects that make this degree program distinctive and unique."
