The Horticulture department prides itself on having a very fine program for students planning to enter the field of horticulture and for people already working in the Industry who wish to expand and update their horticultural knowledge.
Most classes are offered during convenient evening hours, allowing working students to study for a new career, and for those with jobs in the field to upgrade their skills.
Courses have been designed so that students may specialize in areas such as landscape design, landscape maintenance, interior plantscaping, pest and disease control, and nursery operation. Course content is relevant, up-to-date, meets current industry standards, and has been developed with input from experts in the horticultural industry.
Students may choose to take one or two classes, or take the required courses for a certificate of achievement in Horticulture. Completion of the certificate program satisfies the major requirement for an associate in arts degree.
