The online General Horticulture option curriculum is built on a strong foundation in horticultural science. This option is especially recommended for students already working in the horticultural industry, whose careers will benefit from post-secondary education in the horticultural sciences.
The Horticulture Major Core provides strong foundations in plant biology and chemistry, horticultural principles & practices, pest management, soils, ecology and economics. Applications in plant nutrition, business and marketing add to that foundation. As a student, you will be well-informed about the latest technology and trends in the field. The General Horticulture option provides broad electives that will allow you to build your curriculum to meet your individual goals.
