Turf Management, B.S.


Return to Majors & Minors Return to: Majors & Minors

The Turf Management major prepares students for careers in the golf course, sports turf, and lawn care industries.   Graduates serve as golf course superintendents, sports field managers, and lawn care specialists.  The curriculum provides a strong base in plant and soil science with many technical classes in turf management.   Considerable class time is spent visiting nearby turf facilities and doing hands-on activities on the College’s putting green, lawns, and sports fields.  The highlight of the program is the required work experience.

The Experience360 (E360) at Delaware Valley College is a graduation requirement for all full-time undergraduate students. Students can choose from multiple experiential learning activities and will earn 4 credits for the E360 depending on their major’s program requirements.

  • Students must have completed 27 credits to enroll in Experiential Learning Activities.
  • All students must complete an introductory course prior to enrolling in any Experiential Learning Activities.
