HORT. 351 TURFGRASS MANAGEMENT WILL BE OFFERED THIS SPRING ON THE WEB

November 30, 2011

For the first time ever, I will be offering Hort/Agronomy 351-Turfgrass Establishment and Management- in the spring. It will be entirely web based and you can take it any place in the world without coming to campus. For more information, see

http://www.agde.iastate.edu/course/viewCourse.php?courseID=S2012HORT%20351%20XW

This course carries minor graduate credit and could be used towards an MS degree.

I have recently become part of the Master of Agronomy Distance program. Through this web based program, you can get an MS in agronomy with a specialization in Turf Science while you are employed full time. Most of it is offered off-campus through the web. You would need to do a creative component in some aspect of turf science and come to campus for a couple of short summer workshops and for your final defense.

This program is ideal for those who want to achieve a Master's degree without leaving their full time job. It is well suited for those teaching in two-year programs who want to finish a master's degree. The creative component can be the development of a course for teaching at the community college level.

For more information on the Master of Agronomy program, see:

Pass this on to anyone who might be interested.

I can be reached at 515-294-0036 for more information, or e-mail me at nchris@iastate.edu.
