Turfgrass Management (120 Credits)

The IPS - Turfgrass Management major is geared toward students interested in pursuing careers as golf course managers, athletic field managers, or personnel managers in those venues. Students will take courses in turf management, turf production, plant pathology, entomology, soil fertility, and plant breeding to learn how to maintain healthy turfgrass systems. Additionally, students gain hands-on experience at the Palouse Ridge Golf Course, an 18-hole championship golfing facility at the Pullman campus.

A student may be admitted to an IPS major upon making their intention known to the department.
