Horticulture Technology

Horticulture Technology prepares individuals to produce, process, and market plants, shrubs, and trees used principally for ornamental, recreational and aesthetic purposes. Students learn to establish, maintain and manage horticultural enterprises such as arboriculture, the study of trees; floriculture, the study of flowering plants; greenhouse operation; landscape design and management; nursery operation; and turf management. The purpose of the Horticulture Technology program is to meet the needs of the industry on all levels of training and skills. This applies to persons entering school directly from a secondary program or re-entering for specific training and/or license certification. Successful completion of 33 credit hours entitles a student to receive a certificate in Horticulture; completion of the full 65-semester hour curriculum results in
the student receiving an Associate in Applied Science Degree.
