Interested in a horticulture degree?
Horticulture is the art and science concerned with the production and utilization of high-value, intensively cultivated plants used for food, landscaping and environmental design. Horticultural plants include annual and perennial species, food crops, and ornamental plants that can be grown outdoors and in controlled environments.
The study of horticulture is for those who value and appreciate plants and how they enrich lives. Students pursuing a horticulture degree choose one of the following concentrations:
• Horticultural science
• Sustainable and organic horticulture
• Horticulture landscape design, construction and management
Graduates with a horticulture degree combine diverse fundamental disciplines — physical science, biological science, environmental science, social science, art and design — with horticultural crop production and business operations.
