Landscape and Lawn Management Dual Enrollment Certificate and Associate Degree Program (Grand Rapids)
The program uses multiple course delivery methods. MSU offers two to three courses each fall and spring semester in the evening at locations in Grand Rapids. All classes are taught on-site by MSU faculty or highly qualified industry leaders. Other MSU courses will be taught via distance learning, an interactive television system that connects students and classmates to the best instructors possible.
The Landscape and Lawn Management Certificate combines horticulture courses with business courses and an industry related internship to fulfill the program. The combination of courses is delivered by the Institute of Agricultural Technology and Grand Rapids Community College which together fulfill the Certificate requirements. Students in the program are also able to earn an Associate’s Degree from GRCC by taking only a few more classes.
This Certificate leads to employment in landscaping, turfgrass, and plant nursery industries. The required professional internship gives students direct applied experience in preparation of job placement or enhancing current skills.
