Horticulture

Horticulture program collage

Horticulture is an art as old as the ancient garden and a science as new as today’s genetic engineering. It involves intensive cropping technology, including the development, production, distribution and utilization of vegetables, fruits, turfgrass, woody landscape and greenhouse plants. Horticulture is an industry, profession, business, vocation and avocation. It is of universal value and application to the populace, whether rural, suburban or urban. Horticulture enriches our lives with nutritious, delectable foods and the beauty and utility of creative plantscapes.

The Department of Plant Sciences offers a four-year curriculum in horticulture leading to the Bachelor of Science degree. There are seven horticulture options: horticulture biotechnology, horticulture science, landscape design, landscape management, production-business, sports and urban turfgrass management, and urban forestry and parks.
