Sport Surfaces

The Department of Crop, Soil and Environmental Sciences at Auburn University offers courses on turfgrass use and care for a variety of natural and artificial surfaces. The faculty in this program have an excellent working relationship with Auburn’s athletic field management crew, enabling undergraduate and graduate students to gain first-hand turf sport management experience while enrolled.

Former students of the program have interned or received management positions at locations such as Turner Field (Atlanta Braves), Lambeau Field (Green Bay Packers) and Fenway Park (Boston Red Sox). Our program also prepares students for care and management of landscape, grounds and sport fields for municipalities – opening the door to a wide range of career opportunities from small towns to large cities.
