   The courses offered in horticulture permit the student to specialize in
fruit growing,
 landscape design, or vegetable production. The choice of electives taken
in other
 departments to supplement horticultural courses will be determined by the
specialization
 and the particular phase of the work the student expects to enter. Courses
1, 3, 5, 6,
 7, and 12 should be of particular interest to students specializing in other
departments
 who are fitting themselves to be county agents, teachers in vocational or
high schools,
 or farm managers or operators.
 Majors in horticulture may count a maximum of five credits toward the major
 requirement by electing Economic Entomology 103 or 105 and Plant Pathology
7.
 Students majoring in landscape gardening are not required to count as credits
in their
 major the following courses in the Department of Horticulture: Horticulture
1, 3, 5,
 and 16. Landscape majors may substitute Art Education 50 for Animal Husbandry
 I and Civil Engineering 117 or 118 for Mathematics 71 in the freshman year.
With
 the consent of the major adviser Agricultural Economics 117 may be substituted
for
 Agricultural Economics 1. The attention of majors is called to courses in
