PLSC460: Application of Knowledge in Plant Sciences
A capstone course based on interactions with plant science professionals and student-led class discussions. Students will apply their knowledge and experience to practical issues in the discipline, further develop critical thinking ability, and enhance their communication, teamwork, and professional skills. Topics will include nutrient management, integrated pest management, plant interactions with urban and rural ecosystems, planning of public grounds, plant biotechnology, and teaching skills.
Capstone projects have been created around the close partnership between the Arboretum & the Campus Pantry by way of the Community Learning Garden.
