UConn TurfGrass Science program
The Turfgrass Programs in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources and the Ratcliffe Hicks School of Agriculture at the University of Connecticut provide students an opportunity to study turfgrass science and management in conjunction with courses in soil science and fertility, pest control, ornamental horticulture, landscape design, environmental science, and business management. UConn turf students are given opportunities to gain practical experiences in the private sector through internships and independent studies.

UConn Turf Programs are designed to provide students basic and applied knowledge in turfgrass science and management. Students completing the turfgrass science programs can apply their skills in the management of residential and commercial lawns, golf courses, athletic and recreational fields, parks, sod farms, roadsides, inland and coastal erosion control sites, and other areas where grasses are utilized. Baccalaureate students have the opportunity to pursue graduate degree programs.
